“There is an ancient copper mine near the coastal town of Llandudno in North Wales. This area rises 220 meters above the Irish Sea, and it is known as the location of the Great Orme Copper Mine. It dates to the Bronze Age, about 3500 years ago. More than 2500 hammers at the mine have been recovered”.
“A six pound sledge hammer today is common. 10 and 12 pound hammers are extremely difficult to swing for any period of time. 20 pound sledge hammers are huge and can still be purchased, but no man could wield one through an eight hour shift in a copper mine”….s8int.com
So what kind of man was able to swing a 60 pound hammer during their shift in an ancient copper mine?
