Description
For the lover of antiquities, the term bronze carries a number of meanings. In the 19th century a Danish museum employee decided to organize the museum's collection by dividing the artifacts into time periods based on man's changing tool types.

When man discovered that by alloying tin with copper he could create a material substance much stronger than copper, the resulting bronze technology changed many aspects of his culture. One monumental change was in the weaponry, fine examples represented here in these splendid Arrow heads - (SP.539)
