the manufacture of copper and bronze artifacts of Bronze
Age civilizations would add greatly to our knowledge of
Line cultural contacts and trade in that era. Researchers have
5 analyzed artifacts and ores for their concentrations of elements,
but for a variety of reasons, these studies have generally failed
to provide evidence of the sources of the copper used in the
objects. Elemental composition can vary within the same
copper-ore lode, usually because of varying admixtures of
10 other elements, especially iron, lead, zinc, and arsenic. And
high concentrations of cobalt or zinc, noticed in some artifacts,
appear in a variety of copper-ore sources. Moreover, the
processing of ores introduced poorly controlled changes
in the concentrations of minor and trace elements in the
15 resulting metal. Some elements evaporate during smelting
and roasting; different temperatures and processes produce
different degrees of loss. Finally, flux, whi...
