Experience the Iron Age: 'Days of Fire' - September 21, 22
Graduate students of the Garman Art Conservation Department, under the supervision of faculty members Jonathan Thornton and Aaron Shugar, will conduct an experimental pyrotechnology weekend, "Days of Fire," on Friday, September 21, and Saturday, September 22, on the lawn next to Campus House. Activities will include reproducing an Iron Age smelting furnace, Bronze Age copper melting and casting, ancient glass bead manufacture, and other Iron Age–appropriate activities. The furnace will be built on Friday, the smelt will be conducted on Saturday, and the weekend will culminate with the extraction of the iron bloom late Saturday. Activities start at 10:00 a.m. on both days and are free and open to the public. For more information, please call the department at 878-5025.
