    A charcoal kiln (abbreviated to Meiler) is a covered pile of wood that is set on fire by a charcoal burner to produce charcoal.
    Charcoal has been produced by coal miners since ancient times. Charcoal is much lighter than wood and thus easier to transport. In addition, charcoal produces a much greater heat. The charcoal kiln was therefore an important industry in the early modern period.
    On May 1, Köhler ignites Hubertus Birkelbach the charcoal kiln in the Haard. For about three weeks, the temporary oven kokelt until it is opened and the coal is removed.
