The Bronze Age can be referred to the era wherein metals were employed and moulded for crafting tools as well as other weapons. This age was followed immediately subsequent to the end of the Neolithic Age. The Bronze Age came into existence in 3500B.C. in the Middle East, and came to India approximately around 3300BC. It is set to have promoted the development of the metallurgy industry that is reflected through its remains.
This age nearly collided with the foundation of the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC). However, the people belonging to the Indus Valley shaped many other metals apart from bronze, and thereby developing new techniques of metallurgy.
