Full text not available from this repository.


As scientific archaeological investigations in the Middle East intensified during the 20th century, the West was to discover that a multitude of mechanisms of civilization, from farming technology to early metals, writing, state societies and empires, had evolved in and spread to Europe from the East. In the 1960s Wertime wrote: “Forty years ago a number of European countries were vying to be known as the original home of the blast furnace — today the competition has moved in space to the Middle East and in time to the much earlier beginnings of the smelting of ores and metals” (Wertime, 1968a, p. 927).
