Abstract | Full Text

The appearance and the spreading of metallic objects produced a profound social change. The early metallurgy included two ages: The Bronze Age and The Iron Age. The late Bronze Age is considered to be the most important for biblical archeology, because it seems to correspond to the period when Moses lived and when the Hebrew people exited Egypt. According to archaeological testimonies, the first iron period coincides with the entrance in Palestine of two invader peoples. The Bible mentions six metals : gold, silver, copper, iron, steel and tin. Metals served to humans as the most important material for manufacturing weapons, manufacturing application, jewels, cult objects and, most importantly, for manufacturing tools.
