      They appeared at the transition from the Late Neolithic period, around B.C., to the Early Bronze Age during the third millennium B.C. somewhere in Western Europe. After Prehistory, which includes the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic, the Bronze Age is the first period of «Protohistory», also called the «Metal Ages». Marked by significant technological and social advances, the Bronze Age was an important step in the evolution of European societies.

    The Bell Beaker culture or short Beaker culture, is an archaeological culture named after the inverted-bell beaker drinking vessel used at the very beginning of the European Bronze g from around BC, and lasting in continental Europe until BC, succeeded by the Unetice culture, in Britain until as late as BC. The culture was widely scattered throughout Western Europe. In contrast to Anatolia and Near East, the earliest stages in the development of Mediterranean metallurgy appear only after about BC. During the late Neolithic of Aegean (ca. BC) pins of copper turn up at Dikili Tash, Paradeissos, and Kitsos Cave, while two small daggers have been recovered from Aya Marina in Phocis. It was only during the following, Final Neolithic period (ca.

    The following article questions the origin of the raw materials and science used for the 'Copper-age' and 'Bronze-age' in ancient Britain. Copper-arsenic alloys were used throughout mainland Europe and the Middle East during the 'Copper Age', the slow transition from the late Neolithic to the Bronze Age between about and BC.   Based on a discussion of previously-known and newly-discovered settlement material, the author of this thesis examines the development of society during the Late Neolithic and Bronze Age .
