Characterized by the use of weapons and implements made of bronze, it is the third phase in the development of material culture following the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods, and denotes the first period in which metal was used.

When did the name of Luz change to Bethel?

Strange things happened at Bethel. In Genesis 12:8, Abraham had pitched his tent to the east of Bethel and built an altar of stones. Later, in verse 13:3, he returned to Bethel and to the sacred stone altar. Here, the town is portrayed as already being called Bethel.

Yet in chapter 28, Abraham's grandson Jacob slept in a certain place and dreamed of a ladder going up to heaven then he named that place Bethel, but before then it had been called Luz. Here, the town is portrayed as being called Luz, until Jacob chose a new name, Bethel.

Jacob used a stone for a pillow and after waking put it on a pillar and poured oil on it. It has long been known that there was a West Semitic deity named Bethel, associated with the veneration of sacred stones*, thus this and previous passages point to the city being named after the god Bethel. When it first acquired this name will probably never be known.

Bethel can also mean 'House of God', but this derivation does not fit well with either the Abraham narrative, since in this story the town already existed and must have been named as such by its Canaanite inhabitants, nor the Jacob narrative, as there is nothing in the dream that leads to "House of God". Even this less probable alternative does not lead to the date of a change of name for the town.

*Footnote: The Jewish Encyclopedia tells us that the worship of sacred stones constituted one of the most general and ancient forms of religion; but among no other people was this worship so important as among the Semites. Sacred stones are mentioned with great frequency in the Old Testament, with at least ten of these references associated with Jacob.

Why did the bronze age happen?

A silly (but bascially true way) to remember it is to think

The stone age was when people hit things with stones.

The bronze age was when people hit things with bronze.

The iron age was when people hit things with (you guessed it!) iron!

However odd it sounds it is true. But here is the technically correct explanation.

The change from the stone age to the bronze age was a gradual change. The bronze age was when the most used material in manufacturing was bronze. The bronze could be from either smelting copper and tin (that were extracted from ores) to make bronze or just trading with other countries.

Answer 2: The Bronze Age happened because the tools made with Bronze were superior to tools made with the materials that were used earlier (Stone and/or Copper).

In most societies tool-making technology evolved from: Stone Tools => Copper Tools => Bronze Tools. Bronze is superior to Stone and Copper because:

  • it's more durable, harder than copper and less brittle than stone
  • Bronze is alloy made up of two metals either copper & arsenic or copper & tin. These metals are relatively easy to smelt (smelting is the extraction of a metal from its naturally occurring ore)
  • It's relatively easy to forge (forging is heating the metal and pounding it into the shape of the tool you want)
  • It's castable (casting is melting the metal and pouring it into a mold to create the tool you want)
  • It makes better edged and pointed tools (Axes, hatchets, knives swords) than copper or stone. Many of these are weapons and better weapons means societies that use Bronze had an advantage on the battlefield.

Did spartan warriors have makeup?

I don't believe so. Spartan warriors may have thought it demeaning to wear make-up. I might be wrong though.

No and the spartan women were forbidden to wear make-up, perfume and jewellery.

What was Augustus real name?

He was born Gaius Octavius. After his adoption by Julius Caesar, following the naming conventions for adoptees, he became Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianius. Although historians use the name Octavian (Octavianus in English) for the period prior to his becoming the first Roman emperor, he never used this name. The renamed himself Imperator Caesar Divi Filius (Winner in Battle, Son of the Divine Caesar). Imperator did not mean emperor. It was a title the Roman troops shouted for their victorious commander. He made a big deal of the fact that he was the adoptive son and main heir of Caesar and used this as the basis for his bid for power. Caesar was deified after his death. Hence his renaming himself Son of the Divine Caesar. In 27 BC the senate bestowed the title of Augustus on him (the Venerable One) . So his full name became Imperator Caesar Divi Filius Augustus. The title Augustus had religious connotations, rather than political ones. Although historians call Augustus and the subsequent Roman rulers emperors. the Romans did not use this title. They used the title of princeps (First Citizen).

What are the factors that led to the decline of bronze age civilization?

Hormones are like messengers in your body that give orders to your cells to do particular things. They are chemicals that are manufactured by glands and released into the bloodstream, sort of holding a sign up with a type of cell's name on it (like a limo driver at the airport waiting to pick up a client.) Most cells ignore the hormone, but when it comes across the right one its chemical "message" is read and the cell starts to do what it has been told. This message could be a lot of different things, but generally it is meant to keep the body functioning and in balance. Too much of a certain hormone can have results such as your gym partner in 8th grade growing a mustache before everybody else or your girlfriend in the 9th grade freaking out on you during "that time of the month."

Here are some things that hormones do for the body. Remember, though, they are only the "messengers" that start the cells into action. They go out into the body when told to by a higher power (the gland) and it's the cell that actually does the work.

  • make people grow or stop growing,
  • make people feel happy or sad,
  • speed up or slow down the metabolism,
  • starting puberty,
  • starting menopause,
  • regulating your fighting, mating, and fleeing instincts.

Who were the beaker people?

Most probably Iberians or other non-Indoeuropean people who inhabited great parts of Europe including Ireland, Britain, Sardinia and Sicily between cca 3500 and 1000 BC if not even much earlier as age of several Irish sites suggests. Partial evidence for this could be found in vivid use of triple spiral (called triskele in Ireland) until this day under name of agurro by the Basques who claim to be direct descendants of Iberians and the only surviving original European nation. Related to the topic is a theory saying that the Basques along with the Amazigh (Berbers) of North Africa are the only nations descending from the Cromagnon man solely, whereas the rest of world´s population carries genes of mixed Cromagnon and Neanderthal origin. Systematic DNA research in this field would certainly bring us closer to the truth.

Why was iron used extensively long before aluminum?

Aluminum is too reactive to be found in nature. It wasn't purified until the 1800's and then it was so hard to get pure that it was valued as a precious metal much like silver and gold. Only within the last 100 years has aluminum been able to be produced in mass at a low cost.

Iron on the other hand is abundant and not nearly as reactive. Indeed people have been able to refine iron for thousands of years.

Iron is lower on the reactivity series than aluminum and can be displaced from its ore by heating it and adding carbon. Aluminium needs electricity to extract it in big amounts so it was only after electricity was discovered that we could get lots aluminum.

Iron ore is found in Europe and is also quite straight forward to extract the metal using rudimentary processes. The use of metals were generally first used in Europe.

Aluminium is found mostly outside Europe and the extraction process is very complex and requires huge amounts of heat energy (usually supplied using electricity) that early man just couldn't make at the temperatures and timescales required.

In the 1800's aluminum was more expensive then gold was because of the difficulties in obtaining it. It exists in nature as a compound and is not found in a natural state. The earlies metals such as Iron can be found in lumps of meteorites and deposits, usually heavily oxidized, but easily smelted in fires.
