A Comprehensive Exploration of Iron-Age India

The book meticulously examines the vast array of iron-making practices employed across the Indian subcontinent from the Chalcolithic period (c. 2500-1500 BCE) to the early medieval period (c. 6th-13th century CE). It delves into the diverse types of furnaces, smelting techniques, and post-smelting processes that shaped India's iron industry.

Unveiling the Secrets of Ancient Furnaces

One of the book's key highlights is its detailed analysis of ancient iron-smelting furnaces. Readers will gain insights into the construction, operation, and efficiency of various furnace types, including bowl furnaces, shaft furnaces, and composite furnaces. The book draws on archaeological evidence and experimental studies to provide a vivid picture of these remarkable technological feats.

Exploring the Alchemy of Iron Smelting
