Anything Can Be Found Online

I like to show the students the ores and metals at the root of the Bronze and Iron Ages.  I was pleased to find tin sheets, cassiterite (tin's most common ore), and chalcopyrite (CuFeS2), the most common copper ore.  Yes, I have resisted the urge to smelt tin and copper in the classroom and make our own bronze swords.

Why resist. Give in to your temptations! Seriously, who doesn't need a Gladius or two?
