Archaeometallurgy, Guidelines for Best Practice, published by Historic England in 2015, defines a furnace as: ‘…a structure used to hold the ore as the metal is extracted from it by smelting. Furnaces were usually made from clay and, because they were exposed to high temperatures, the clay was sometimes partially vitrified. The archaeological remains of furnaces and hearths are often similar.’
