It is associated with the discovery of the first workable metal - copper. The term "stone-copper epoch" or "chalcolith" was introduced in 1876 by Hungarian archeologist Ferenc Pulski at an international archaeological congress and specifies the classification of Thompson in which the Bronze Age follows directly the stone.The Stone-Copper Age covers roughly the period 4000-3000 BC, and in some regions of the world it continues to later, and in others it is absent. Chalcolithium is generally considered an early stage of the Bronze Age, but some scientists consider it a separate period. Copper guns, which are soft and fragile, are more precise and better than stone. However, throughout the entire period the stone remains more common due to the still primitive way of extracting and processing the metal. During this period, people discovered for the first time also other metals such as gold and tin.Material:Copper
