  I don't know what these things are, but they are seriously cool.

You can also see the ice at the bottom of their pit. We were not sure how deep it was.

  The answer warrants a warmer trip.

  They are ancient Tokomac's.

  the pit didn't look too deep... maybe arm's length? very stagnant water :puke:

  Yeah... there's likely species of bacteria that are yet to be named floating around in there.

  If so, then let's go back in time to protect these sites!

  Annealing tanks.

  Lots of people have told us that... but what the hell does an annealing tank do? :)

  Fine. Since no one wants to answer it straight, I'm gonna quote the Wikipedia:

In metallurgy and materials science annealing is a heat treatment wherein the microstructure of a material is altered, causing changes in its properties such as strength and hardness. Typically, this results in softening of the metal through removal of crystal defects and the internal stresses which they cause. In the semiconductor industry, silicon wafers are annealed, so that dopant atoms (usually, boron, phosphorus, or arsenic) can be incorporated into substitutional positions in the crystal lattice, resulting in drastic changes in the electrical properties of the semiconducting material.

So there. Nyah.

  oooooooh! Now I get it!

  Coils of rolled steel would be put into these tanks. Gas burners around the tank would heat the coil to a particular temperature and then a carefully controlled cool-down process would begin. This softens the steel so that it can be worked in some way - pressed, roll formed, or sheared.
