(1) The Birch Creek Charcoal Kilns are a group of beehive-shaped clay charcoal kilns near Leadore, Idaho, built in 1886 to produce charcoal to smelt lead and silver ore from the nearby Viola Mine. (2) Brora, Scotland, is where a volunteer-based excavation recorded the town’s historic salt houses before a big storm washed them away. (3) Blacksmiths make a replica of a Saxon Sword. This sword was buried with its owner and lay underground for 1500 years until it was found by archaeologists in the 1980s ahead of planned highway construction.
