History of Copper
Copper has been an essential material since prehistoric times. In fact, one of the major "ages" or stages of human history is named for a copper alloy, bronze. Copper and its many alloys have played an important role in many civilizations, from the ancient Egyptians and Romans to modern-day cultures around the world.
There are hundreds of alloys of copper, from high coppers and bronzes and brasses, to other, more specialized alloys that mix a wide variety of elements with copper to create unique alloys with uniquely different and beneficial characteristics.
