Copper has a long history in mankind; it goes all of the way back ten thousand years, in Northern Iraq. It was found in an excavation and is identified as a bead that was found naturally occuring in the area at that time period. Copper has been anciently used in very useful ways, such as using it to create bells, coins, cutlery, and tools. Copper was also used much and conserved during 1943, because of WWll, for usage of shell casings.
