Williamsburg, VA - Blacksmith
Peter Ross

Above: Forge and floor were finished JIT but still await a shelter. The beautiful bellows were provided by the Williamsburg blacksmiths.

Left: Peter forging a nail using classic technique. Later he did his famous tong forging demonstration. Peter is an amazing smith. He can move iron as fast or faster than most of us can with a small power hammer.

Peter is the head blacksmith at Williamsburg and has revolutionized the blacksmithing program there.
