In the first half of the colonial period, all anvils were brought to America from
Spain. These included the heavy two-horned shop anvils of the kind used by
medieval armorers and general smiths and the smaller stakes or bickerns that
served light metal workers. (Fig. 1) Records of the Ofiate expedition indicate that
anvils of various sizes, perhaps numbering a dozen or more, reached New
Mexico with the first colonists in 1598. Others were introduced into the remaining
provinces by ...

The use of the term "anvil" in the literature is particularly problematic, because it
is often not defined. Ames et al. define anvils as "large flat stones that lack the
evidence of pounding but are in contexts that suggest their use" (1998:109). This
definition contrasts with that of Connolly et al., who describe boulder anvils as
large cobbles and boulders that "exhibit non-localized percussion damage
across the surface" (1994: 101). Anvils have roughly the same geographical
distribution as ...

would be repeated many times until the desired configuration was achieved. A
final step might be to “draw” the iron or temper it to give it toughness by plunging

I remember there were two or three anvils mounted on twenty-four-inch oak
blocks, and the two vices were mounted on stands made from twelve-inch oak
planks and braced at the bottom. Gus made the stands so the anvils and vices
were about waist high to him, for he was shorter than a lot of men. He had all the
tools needed for all kinds of repairs organized in the shop, and it was understood
that no one bothered them. Gus usually used the two-pound steel hammer on the
big anvil ...
