The trumpet is one of the oldest known instruments, dating back to the day people first figured certain seashells and animal horns (adapted into instruments called “shofars”) made a great sound when one blew into them.
Metal trumpets were made as early as 1500 BC, as both bronze and silver trumpets were unearthed in King Tut’s tomb.
Other ancient trumpets have been excavated in Asia, South America, and Scandinavia.
The Israelites, Tibetans, and Romans used the trumpet in religious ceremonies or for magical purposes such as warding off evil spirits.

They did not have the benefit of cheap, off the shelf, mass produced batteries. Bronze is a relatively hard alloy of copper and tin, better suited for the purpose than the much softer copper enabling improved durability of the weapons and the ability to hold a cutting edge.
For many years the telegraph, and later the telephone, industries were the only consumers of batteries in modest volumes and it wasn't until the twentieth century that new applications created the demand that made the battery a commodity item. The use of bronze for tools and weapons gradually spread to the rest of the World until it was eventually superceded by the much harder iron.
The next morning, every maiden in the village would be with child.The electronics, computers and communications industries, power engineering and much of the chemical industry of today were founded on discoveries made possible by the battery.Pioneers It is often overlooked that throughout the nineteenth century, most of the electrical experimenters, inventors and engineers who made these advances possible had to make their own batteries before they could start their investigations. the World was starting to emerge from the Stone Age. C., Mesopotamians (from modern day Iraq), who had already been active for hundreds of years in primitive metallurgy extracting metals such as copper from their ores, led the way into the Bronze Age when artisans in the cities of Ur and Babylon discovered the properties of bronze and began to use it in place of copper in the production of tools, weapons and armour.In other places, such as ancient Greece, Egypt, and the Middle East, the trumpet, which could only play one or two tones, was primarily used by militaries to relay messages over distances or to proclaim royal decrees.Trumpets produce an official, important sound, which is why they were a key part of many landmark historic events well into the 14th century—before people finally considered using the trumpet for music.
