Copper

Israel Antiquities Authority
Archaeology/Chalcolithic & Canaanite Periods

This hoard of copper objects comprised a variety of tools and weapons, as well as unidentifiable items such as a crescent-shaped object and hundreds of rippled plates. The plates made have been scales of armor. The objects are the products of two different metal industries: most of the tools were made in Egypt, while most of the weapons were manufactured in Canaan.
