Medieval Technology and American History In-Depth

For some unknown reason, this technology lagged in the iron industry for an additional fifty years. From the time in which the first serious demands for the substitution of coal for charcoal came about, almost 200 years elapsed before coal could be used effectively in the iron production process. The combination of the difficulty of using coal

Mar 12, 2020 A classic mining book, De re metallica (published 1556), showed a variety of pumps, bucket chains, and treadmill devices. In any case, by the year 1500, iron production for Europe was 60,000 tons (Gies & Gies, 1994). This increase in iron reduced its cost and, at the same time, increased the number of tools available, particularly in agriculture.
