Since few studies of metallurgy have extended beyond typological analysis of artefacts, the circulation of raw materials and the detailing of technical processes, metallurgy in the Aegean Early Bronze Age was made a subject of discussion at the Sheffield Centre for Aegean Archaeology's Round : Peter M.

Day. The Bronze Age is a historical period that was characterized by the use of bronze, and in some areas proto-writing, and other early features of urban Bronze Age is the second principal period of the three-age Stone-Bronze-Iron system, as proposed in modern times by Christian Jürgensen Thomsen, for classifying and studying ancient societies.

ISBN: X OCLC Number: Notes: Papers presented at the third Sheffield Centre for Aegean Archaeology Roundtable on Metallurgy of the Early Bronze Age.

The third SCAA round-table meeting focused on Metallurgy in the Early Bronze Age. In response to the recent dominance of provenance studies, the papers in this volume reflect a change of emphasis towards understanding metal technologies and contextualising them, in this case, within the archaeology of the Early Bronze Aegean.

The relationship between specialized copper production, exchange, and the development of social complexity in early Arabia is examined, and the author addresses the broader archaeological issue of the Bronze Age tin trade, which linked vast areas of Western Asia, from the Indo-Iranian borderlands to the Aegean, in the third millennium by:   The development of metallurgy in ancient Mesopotamia and the surrounding regions of the Ancient Near East to the end of the Neo-Babylonian period (ca.

Weeks addresses the. The cast alloy of copper and tin is bronze, a substance so useful to human beings that an entire period of early civilization has become known as the Bronze Age.

A bronze blade will take a sharper edge than copper and will hold it longer. And bronze ornaments and vessels can be cast for a wide variety of purposes.

The technology of bronze is. The Bronze Age is the time period when people made tools from an alloy (a mixture of metals) called bronze.

Bronze is a mixture of mainly copper and tin: usually nine parts copper to one part als like wood and stone were also used for tools, but bronze was better for cutting and chopping, and was easy to shape.

Aegean civilizations, the Stone and Bronze Age civilizations that arose and flourished in the area of the Aegean Sea in the periods, respectively, about – bc and about – bc. The area consists of Crete, the Cyclades and some. The Greek Bronze Age, roughly to BC, witnessed the flourishing of the Minoan and Mycenean civilizations, the earliest expansion of trade in the Aegean and wider Mediterranean Sea, the development of artistic techniques in a variety of media, and the evolution of early Greek religious practices and mythology.

The Greek Bronze Age or the Early Helladic Era started around BC and lasted till BC in Crete while in the Aegean islands it started in BC. The Bronze Age in Greece is divided into periods such as Helladic I, II.

The information that is available today on the Bronze Age in Greece is from the architecture, burial styles and lifestyle.

As Keith Branigan had pointed out in his pioneering study of metallurgy in the Early Bronze Age (EBA) Aegean, facilities and equipment for smelting metal ores should be sought “in the vicinity of the ore sources themselves” (Branigan69), from where the extracted metal was brought in the form of small ingots to the settlements.

A further chemical discovery was involved in the advanced metallurgy of the Bronze Age. The addition to copper of a small proportion of tin reduces its melting-point, minimises the danger of flaws from bubbles in casting and increases the hardness of the cold alloy.

The period just surveyed, termed Early Aegean, extends from about to. BOOK REVIEWS Aegean Metalwork of the Early and Middle Bronze Age.

Day and R. Doonan (eds.), Metallurgy in the Early Bronze Age Aegean [Sheffield Studies in Aegean Archaeology 7] (Oxford ) During the Early Bronze Age most of the finer vases everywhere in the Aegean area had been decorated with designs in dark, rather shiny paint--shades of red, brown, and black --on a light surface.

A useful type of vase first attested there at the beginning of the Early Bronze Age was a handled jug with a spout for pouring. The islands were known for their white marble, mined during the Greek Bronze Age and throughout Classical history. Their geographical location placed them, like the island of Crete, in the center of trade between Greece, Egypt, Asia Minor, and the Near East.
