The Stone Age Prehistoric cultural stage, or level of human development, characterized by the creation and use of stone tools.
The Bronze Age was a period of time between the Stone Age and the Iron Age when bronze was used widely to make tools, weapons, and other implements. Bronze is made when copper is heated and mixed with tin, creating a stronger metal than copper. No one knows exactly where or how bronze was first discovered.
By around BC, farm tools and weapons are being made of this new metal in these areas. Bronze is being used in the Mediterranean and Eastern European areas. This new metal is expensive to make, plus a craftsman is needed to make this new alloy.
Bronze tools, weapons, statuary, jewelry, and even toys have been discovered from this time period. Toward the end of this period they are using bronze to make tools and weapons. Few tools are made in the beginning, but by BC bronze has replaced all stone tools.
Eventually they will make such items as axeheads, knives, spearheads, razors, and swords.
The vast use of bronze continues to about BC. They even set up bronze-working communities. Around BC Lady Hao, the wife of King Wuding, dies and is buried with many items for the afterlife including bronze vessels, armor, bells, tools, knives, and tigers. The southern coastal community of Phylos had laborers for their bronze-working industry.
The Hyksos brought chariots and weapons made from bronze. The undeveloped areas of Northern Europe don't use bronze until about BC.
