Iron in the Northwest[edit]

The article Ozette Indian Village Archeological Site says iron is presumed to have washed ashore from Asian ships, but Metallurgy in pre-Columbian America says it was made by native smiths before European contact. This seems like an important issue to resolve, whether or not the Iron Age began anywhere in the Western Hemisphere before European contact. -- Beland (talk) 22:40, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
