Abstract

The results of a preliminary study on three bronze archaeological objects from different sites on the North Sinai Coast and the Nile Delta region are presented. This area, and in particular the North Sinai, which was the most important landbridge linking Egypt and Ancient Israel, is of considerable interest in the study of bronze technology in ancient times. The investigation made use of metallography, microhardness testing, and SEM analysis. The three artifacts were found to be of different chemical composition, microstructure, and manufacturing process. Preliminary results support archaeological evidence that this region enjoyed a high level of bronze technology.
