Here is an excerpt from the new Blacksmith History information webpage:
âThe first formed and shaped pieces of metal discovered at archeological digs dates back almost 5000 years. Early man lived by hunting and eating wild crops. The hunting was done using rocks, wooden clubs, large bones and sharpened wooden poles. The problem was that rocks, clubs and bones required both brute strength and close contact with the prey. The sharp pole cold be thrown from a distance but the point would often not be strong enough to pierce the hide of the animal. Farming was an unknown concept because sharpened bones and wood would break in the ground. All this changed with the discovery of metal and the development of the skill of shaping it. The persons who knew how to heat and shape metal into arrow and spear heads and also to make iron implements for tilling the soil were the first technicians of the human race. With the ability to hunt more efficiently and also to farm land for food, life became easier and blacksmiths were in great demand.â
