We follow a very old tradition whose origin is located middle of the 4th millennium BC. Bronze casters are called those who knew how to exercise the craft with one of the most important alloys of all time. They were at the head of society. By mixing copper with tin, they received a metal which they could form as desired. The current contract works, of course, included weapons, tools and jewelry.
The trade to the valuable resources it took place across thousands of kilometers. Bronze meant for human wealth, prestige and power. This also explains why the "Bronze Age" has given its name to an entire era. Historically counts the Bronze Age to the prehistoric times and finds its beginning during the Copper Age. By the end of the 3rd Millennium BC, the extraction and production of bronze is further optimized. It is clear that it must have been a very long process equal an evolution. However, there are only few historical documents, as tin alloys are unlikely to be detected due to oxidation. Only when they could recover the Late Bronze Age trading vessel Uluburun 1984 off the southwest coast of Turkey, archaeologists found there about one tonne Tin Bar, 500 copper ingots and numerous other treasures that could shed light on the trade during that time. It thus concluded on a mixing ratio of ten parts of copper to one part tin, which is needed for normal production of bronze. The wreck and salvage finds can still be visited in an underwater museum in Bodrum Turkey.
According to scientists, the Bronze Age trade played mainly from the Mediterranean and the Near East. As a starting point, from which both the material and the knowledge of the European Bronze technology was exported, is the Middle East. Findings document that the Palestinian people have already been produced bronze around 3300 BC, and in Egypt around 2700 BC. Only in recent years, around 2200 BC bronze finds are further evidenced in Central Europe around 1800 BC in northern Europe. It is thought that the present Brindisi in southern Italy, which was in ancient times Neugriechenland, was a kind of center of the bronze processing and bronze trade.
The Bronze Age was then replaced gradually from the early Iron Age, called Hallstatt period. In order the bronze became less important for the production of weapons, but tied in construction and especially in the production of monuments back into the experience and use of the ancient world. In the early Middle Age, the "bronze art" then got a new impetus. Casters of bells and other bronze works supported the religious and secular rule for several centuries before iron smelting and casting of iron then replaced the bronze.
