The replica blast furnace at New Lapphyttan has been operated by a group of enthusiasts for many years. This group, which includes both professionals and interested members of the public, aims to better understand the way a blast furnace operated in medieval times. Each year the furnace runs for a two-week campaign and the last one has seen the successful production of pig iron, as well as slag which matches the material found by archaeologists at the original Lapphyttan furnace site.
