Stone age to Bronze Age Europe Antiquities
The Bronze Age and Iron Age did not begin or end simultaneously across the world or even across Europe. The Aegean Bronze Age succeeded the Neolithic about 3200 BC. Iron working was introduced to Europe in the late 11th century BC, probably from the Caucasus, and slowly spread northwards and westwards over the succeeding 500 years. In Northern Europe the Bronze Age lasted until about 600 BC.
