Barber concentrates in this book not on the variety of and classification of bronze age artifacts, but the effect bronzemaking had on society and on the status of the craftsmen themselves. Mining, smelting, casting, and deposition are his main focus, as well as the effect the magic of transformation of metals had on society.
