Bronze Casting Demonstration

Kind of Event

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

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