Greek Blacksmiths

Blacksmiths used bronze, and later iron ore, to create swords, plows, axes, and other tools. They used billows made of animal skin to blow air into their fires to produce the heat needed to work with the metal. After heating the metal, they used hammers to shape it into a weapon or a tool.
