Technology of metal

The research involves defining the manufacturing processes in metal processing and examines changes in processing technology, primarily bronze and iron, in different periods of human history. Based on an interdisciplinary approach, geological sources of mineral raw materials and natural resources needed as a basis for designing specific archaeological landscape associated with the processing of metals are analyzed. The places of primary production are defined and the distribution of semi-finished products to the place of production of finished items is monitored.
