Silver Smelting Hut, Schneeberg, Saxonia, Germany

The old silver smelter "Sankt Georgen" in Schneeberg was created at 1500 by the rich treasure trove of Sankt Georg. At 1519, it was one of the most important smelting huts in the Schneeberger mountain area and changed the owner several times. In the year 1665 it was a electoral hut in a dilapidated state. Parts of it were re-used in the construction of the new silver smelter to Schneeberg in the Lindenau reason in the year 1665. The building, still standing at this point, has many historical details of the electoral silver smelting hut. Presumably, it is the only remaining building of a silver smelting hut in the European area, where the methods described by Georgius Agricola were still being worked on.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
