    ironworking among the Bahaya of western Victoria Nyanza. He then devotes two chapters to an analysis of symbolism, a focus of his vast interest. Through a cross-cultural and comparative approach, using the Pangwa of southern Tanzania, Tabwa of Democratic Republic of Congo, Chulu and Phoka of . Two areas of sub-Saharan Africa have emerged as candidates for areas where iron smelting could have developed, the Western Africa region around the Niger-Nigeria border or north-western Tanzania. This essay will argue for the independent discovery of iron smelting technology in sub-Saharan Africa based on discoveries made in Western Africa.

    The author is a graduate student affiliated with Addis Ababa University and the University of Bergen, who is currently concentrating on ethnoarchaeological studies in Ethiopia. He has carried out ethnographic field work on iron smelting traditions in West Ethiopia among the Oromo. Mr. Burka has also worked on reconstructing iron smelting techniques and traditions that had a long heritage in. Barndon, R.

Every aspect of the smelt was a team effort, from collecting magnetite sand from a local beach, to building the bloomery furnace. This book is the first serious attempt to provide a general study of the inception and early history of iron in China since the much shorter studies of Needhani ( & ; see also Rostoker & Bronson ).

The present work tries to come to grips with the problems inherent in the study of Chinese cul- ture. tion of iron smelting among the Madi people of the northern region of Zaire in the 's.

There the ore was pre­ heated for 30 minutes in a very hot fire. The Madi gave several reasons for doing so. One was that the firing of hematite made it easier to separate the iron ore from the other associated materials.

A second reason was that.———. Mental and material as pects of iron working: a cultural comparative perspective. In Aspects of African archaeology.
