The simplest tutorial on forging is to get a hammer and some pieces of different metals, and an anvil.
Then start banging away.
Nest, get snother piece or two of metal that looks like a die. Place on top of the metal and bang away.
You might use a torch and heat the metal to a "softening" temperature and also bang away.
Now you will know physically what forging is.
I suggest that you visit a library for books.
An hour in the library is worth a week in the laboratory.
An hour in the library is worth a day searching for web sites.
You might be able to ride a horse to the library.
However, if you insist, use a laptop (on a horse or a desk) and go to : http://octopus.freeyellow.com/metlinks.html
Be careful not to learn anything about materials from any of those dangerous sites.
