Video Title
Basque Ironworking (Burdinola)
Basque iron furnaces date back to medieval times. During the nineteenth century, hematite iron mines in Bizkaia fed British and Spanish foundries and spearheaded industrialization at home and abroad. The sudden wealth spurred large-scale shipping, banking, and energy production. Smaller businesses and artisans continued to be tied to the land while adapting to the new production methods.
