The Dagger Of Tutankhamun

The man began to work with metals on a regular basis around 3300 BC, but only after 2,000 years, mastered the technology of high temperature melting, which allowed us to obtain iron from the ore. These 20 centuries called the Bronze age, due to the dominance in use of products from this alloy, therefore, extremely rare iron things of that time have the status of artifacts. But where did they come from?

Myths of different Nations talking about the gifts of the gods – wonderful items, who arrived from the heavens, from which skilled craftsmen have already made such things as the dagger of Tutankhamun Syrian or pendant older than 4 thousand years. In modern interpretation this means that the ancient Smiths worked with meteoric iron. That is, no raw materials and ready-made material that was only to soften and shape it.

Meteorites on Earth are rare, and it goes well with the status of artifacts on the planet there are not many of these iron objects from the Bronze age. But whether they are made of meteorite iron? Albert Jambon from the National center for scientific research (CNRS) in France used x-ray fluorescence spectrometer to measure precise amounts of impurity metals in prehistoric wares.

All officially recorded metal meteorites the Nickel content and cobalt exceeds performance in the iron of terrestrial origin. And the same picture Jambon saw in the study of artifacts from museums. Everywhere, without exception, was a direct reference to meteoric iron. It turns out, the ancient legends are true and wonderful things of the past do have extraterrestrial origins.
