The purpose of this paper is to introduce, discuss and analyze the development of early civilizations and how they used metals.

The paper discusses civilization’s development in terms of use of metals in tools through the art of metallurgy. The author looks at how metal tools became more and more effective and productive over time, and examines such ancient civilizations as the Sumerians and Egyptians.
Trade, metallurgy, and mining are still some of the most important industries in the world. Early civilizations created the foundation of our civilization today. They developed elementary political, economic, and social structures based on large groups living together. They are the backbone of modern civilization. Early civilizations mirror our own in many ways, and created the lifestyle of living in the city. Our cities are larger, but the fundamentals that were shaped by early societies as they developed are still part of our culture today.
