Throughout the ages, civilization have risen and fallen based upon the sophistication of their weaponry.As metal working became increasingly advanced, weapons became denser and harder. The first great advance in weaponry making occurred during the Bronze Age, when the most advanced metalworking techniques consisted of smelting copper and tin from naturally occurring outcroppings of ore, and then alloying those metals in order to cast bronze. Swords, spearheads, and arrowheads were cast from molten metal and, once cooled, hammered to increase the density. The invention of bronze may or may not have occurred independently in multiple places. The earliest known tin bronzes come from what is now Iran and Iraq and date to the late 4th millennium B.C., although there are claims of an earlier appearance of tin bronze in Thailand in the 5th millennium B.C. Arsenical bronzes were made in Anatolia, where there were rich deposits of copper and tin, and on both sides of the Caucasus by the early 3rd millennium B.C.
