Second in the experiments working towards a full re-creation of the iron smelt that took place in Vinland by the Norse during the Viking Age. This test employs a mechanical pump bellows to simulate hand powered air delivery. The test took place on October 11, 2009 by members of the Dark Ages Re-creation Company at Wareham Ontario, Canada.
