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.

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.

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.
