Bodycote, UK, has added an Interactive History of Metallurgy to its website that charts the history of metal processing and heat treatment. Containing over 200 images and numerous videos, the timeline identifies important and fascinating discoveries in the working of metal during almost 10,000 years of history.

Starting in 8700BC with the world’s oldest known copper artefacts, through to the metallurgy and engineering processes of today, the resource charts the development of metal working from early mankind through to the scientific and technical breakthroughs of the 20th century.

Bodycote developed the interactive resource to explore the evolution of metallurgy and heat treating and to acknowledge the collective work of scientists and engineers whose hard work and discoveries have enhanced the properties of metals and alloys making them better suited to deliver safer, more durable results in an expanding field of applications.
