A new study claims that most of the iron used in weaponry and artefacts dating from the Bronze Age is, in fact, of extraterrestrial origin. It revealed that the dagger of King Tutankhamun was not the only artifact to have other-worldly materials.
"The few iron objects from the Bronze Age sensu stricto that could be analyzed are definitely made of meteoritic iron, suggesting that speculations about precocious smelting during the Bronze Age should be revised", he writes. "When large celestial bodies like our planet are forming, almost all nickel drifts towards the molten iron core", write the study's authors, indicating that mining techniques common during the Bronze Age would not have gone down far enough to extract significant quantities of nickel or iron. It was classified by the widespread use and creation of tools, decorations and weapons made of bronze across some parts of South Asia and the Near East.
But, scientists have discovered a number of extremely rare objects from this era that were fashioned out of iron, roughly 2,000 years before the start of the Iron Age.
This would allow Bronze Age metalworkers to create iron tools without the smelting process, which would typically require the reduction of bound oxygen in order to achieve the desired metal.
It has been often compared that iron tools of that time were manufactured from meteorites which would have settled the metal in an existing workable state on the Earth's surface. The inconvenience was most of the metal was secured in ore and needed to be smelted at exceedingly high temperatures, which was further the technological capacity.
It's always been thought that iron tools of the time were made from meteorites, which would have deposited the metal in an already-workable state on the Earth's surface. So, the question is from where did those iron weapons and artifacts actually come from? This theory would explain how artifacts of Bronze Age could have iron. Chances are, their owners didn't even know that the metal, which they are using, doesn't belong to this planet.
To determine whether these early iron artifacts were of terrestrial or extraterrestrial origin, Albert Jambon from the the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in France conducted chemical analyses of several Bronze Age samples.
