Got work at the Hjemsted iron age village!

About a week ago I was offered a full time job as blacksmith and iron smelter at the local Hjemsted Oldtidspark iron age heritage center. I didn’t apply for it, the new manager just called me and asked if I wanted it, because he’d heard I was good. So, for the next four months I’ll be smelting iron and forging tools and weapons in their historical smithy!

I had my first day at the new job three days ago. There aren’t a lot of visitors yet because it’s still early summer season, so I’ve spent most of the time gathering tools, furniture and all sorts of goods and materials that I’ll be needing in the smithy. I’ll be posting photos and updates on my work as soon as all the practical stuff is has been done.
