When Was the Iron Age?
The Iron Age is the period after the Bronze Age. Iron production took place in Anatolia at least as early as BC , with some evidence pointing to even earlier dates. It is the final epoch of the three-age system, preceded by the Stone Age Neolithic and the Bronze Age. As its name suggests, Iron Age technology is characterized by the production of tools and weaponry by ferrous metallurgy ironworking , more specifically from carbon steel. One of the earliest smelted iron artifacts known was a dagger with an iron blade found in a Hattic tomb in Anatolia , dating from BC.
The Iron Age was a period in human history that started between B. During the Iron Age, people across much of Europe, Asia and parts of Africa began making tools and weapons from iron and steel. For some societies, including Ancient Greece, the start of the Iron Age was accompanied by a period of cultural decline. Humans may have smelted iron sporadically throughout the Bronze Age , though they likely saw iron as an inferior metal. The use of iron became more widespread after people learned how to make steel, a much harder metal, by heating iron with carbon. The Hittites—who lived during the Bronze Age in what is now Turkey—may have been the first to make steel. The Iron Age began around B.
The move from bronze to iron as the preferred toolmaking metal brought with it a range of social changes. Wealth and power were no longer related to the production and trade in metal but were now associated with food surpluses and land ownership. Improvements in agriculture and diet were reflected in a rising population. It is estimated that between one million and one and a half million people were living in Britain at the time of the Roman invasion. Iron Age Britain was populated by Celtic tribes who had close links to continental Europe. These links were reinforced by trade between the South of Britain and the continent. British exports included grain, metal, dogs and slaves and imports included wine, oil and pottery.
