Sir Henry Bessemer was born in Charlton, Hertfordshire, England. He was an English engineer and inventor, whose steelmaking process would become the most important technique for making steel in the nineteenth century. He also established the town of Sheffield as a major industrial centre. He had been trying to reduce the cost of steelmaking for military ordnance, and developed his system for blowing air through molten pig iron to remove the impurities. This made steel easier, quicker and cheaper to manufacture, and revolutionised structural engineering. He also made over 100 other inventions in the fields of iron, steel and glass.
