I Is For Ingots...

Okay, so what do Ingots have to do with medieval armor and weaponry?

Well, without Ingots, those things couldn't be made.

Ingot ~ An ingot is a material, usually metal, that is cast into a shape suitable for further processing. Ingots require a second procedure of shaping, such as cold/hot working, cutting or milling to produce a useful final product. Additionally ingots (of less common materials) can be used as currency, or as a currency reserve as with gold bars.

Hope all is going well for the rest of the A-Z Challengers! I try to hop around to as many blogs as I can. And seeing as I didn't sign up right away, I'm at the bottom of the list. So if you are going through the list to visit, start from the bottom tomorrow!

Happy Blogging!

People made ingots so that others could make weapons and armor. I think their job was easier.

I would love to make weapons and armor. Might not be the easier job, but what fun!
