What was the Bronze Age?

The Bronze age lasted from 3300 B.C. to 2500 B.C. The Bronze Age was the period of human culture in which where mankind began using bronze metal to make various objects- predominantly tools. The Bronze Age had began after the end of the Neolithic Age (an age that was present in various cultures in Eurasia and had depended predominantly on stone, wood and bone for tools) as people began to develop the techniques for metallurgy (“the branch of science and technology concerned with the properties of metals and their production and purification”). People in the middle east learned to produce bronze by mixing copper and tin. The Bronze Age was followed by the Iron Age.
