Our society relies heavily on the manipulation of Earth’s rich natural resources. Steel, an alloy of iron and carbon, is a great example of this. But the technological road from working the first iron objects to the ultimate stainless steels of today was long and bumpy. This talk will explore the beginnings of iron working in the Bronze and Iron Ages, and the many experiments that led to some more, and some less, successful discoveries along it.
