Saugus: how to make iron

This film, made by Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site, shows the working environment and conditions experienced by the Scottish prisoners who went to the Hammersmith Ironworks at Lynn in what was then the Massachusetts Bay Colony. We highly recommend making a visit to Saugus if you are nearby. It will give you the best impression of the sights and sounds of their new landscape.
