The Bronze Age was a period in human history when copper alloys were the strongest metals known to humanity. The discovery of efficient methods of smelting iron heralded the end of the Bronze Age. The first instances of bronze working began between 4000 BCE and 3000 BCE. The first civilization to move out of the Bronze Age was the Hittite Empire, based in Turkey around 1400 BCE, with iron working becoming common around Eurasia and parts of Africa over the next thousand years.
