  • 6,500-year old tin-bronze from Serbia

    on Jan 20, 14 • in Archaeology, Articles, Neolithic, News, Serbia • with Comments Off on 6,500-year old tin-bronze from Serbia

    The hypothesis of a single origin for Eurasian metallurgy has been challenged by the discovery of copper smelting evidence some 7000 years old at Plochnik, a Vincha culture settlement in eastern Serbia. Here, the tin-bronze foil was excavated from an undisturbed context, on the floor of a dwelling structure next to a copper workshop – a single occupation horizon dated to circa 4650 BCE.
