Bronze Casting Demonstration

Kind of Event

The Bronze Age is best known for its beautiful metal objects. Weapons as well as daggers, swords and jewelry were made in different ways from gold-colored bronze. Archaeotechnician Söhnke Raimann will demonstrate in an impressive way that this is not so easy, but leads to very nice results. It shows a variety of techniques, including the so-called lost form method. How do you achieve the temperature at which the metal begins to melt without modern tools?

Söhnke Raimann will use many examples to show how beautiful and varied the bronze objects from the Bronze Age were.
