History of Bronze:
Bronze is an alloy consisting primarily of copper, commonly with about 12% tin and often with the addition of other metals (such as aluminium, magnesium, nickel, or zinc) and sometimes non-metals or metalloids such as arsenic, phosphorus or silicon. Bronze was significant to any culture that encountered it. Tools Weapons, armour and various building materials like decorative tiles made out of bronze were harder and more durable then their stone or copper predecessors. The earliest tin-alloy bronzes date to the late 4th millennium BCE in Susa (Iran) and some ancient sites in Luristan (Iran) and Mesopotamia (Iraq). Copper and tin ores are rarely found together (exceptions include one ancient site in Thailand and one in Iran), so serious bronze work has always involved trade. In Europe, the major source for tin was Great Britain’s deposits of ore in Cornwall. Phoenician traders visited Great Britain to trade goods from the Mediterranean for tin. Bronze is one of the most iovative alloys of mankind.
