Hey sword-smith! Still mixing up that copper and tin? It’s time to stop smelting and write a brilliant Bronze Age Story. In Britain, The Bronze Age was in full swing around 4,000 years ago. (This is the same time when the Greeks were meant to be wheeling their famous wooden horse up to the gates of Troy!) It was an age packed with stone circles, sword makers and hill forts. So what are you waiting for? (By the way – you’ll need about 88 percent copper and 12 percent tin to make bronze).
