Bronze is the traditional name for an alloy of copper and tin. First utilized during the Bronze Age, to which it gave its name, bronze was used to produce tools, weapons and armor which proved harder and more durable than their stone and copper predecessors. During the bronze age, arsenic was often included in the bronze (mostly as an impurity), which made the alloy even harder.
