Bog Iron

When Britain began to colonize the New World, they found Bog Iron, so they started gathering it and discovered that there was more iron here than in all Britain! -“wait, you say, I think you made a mistake, you say, you meant Mining, not gathering! And what is Bog Iron??-or do you mean Big Iron?” No, I did not make a mistake, Bog Iron is formed when the Iron is dissolved in water and runs down to the (or is brought up by springs), forming Bogs, in the bogs, the water stays still and gives the iron a chance to solidify, so all the colonists had to do was wade in and just pick it up!
