During the visit, students discover the ore reduction from button furnace and the refining of iron sponges. Then, in the reconstructed forge, they become an apprentice blacksmith. Then, in turn andunder the direction of a blacksmith, they pound a small iron bar heated red that will have the chance to become, in their hands : a stick, a bracelet or a Gallo-Roman lighter !
The smith workshop allows students to experience the third stage of iron working (forging), to become familiar with the tools of the blacksmith but also to discover some items, including tools, cigarette lighters, a helmet, a sword and a coat of mail.
