Scientists have finally figured out the mystery of where Bronze Age iron came from

A new study in the Journal of Archaeological Science seems to have solved a long-standing mystery that archeologists and scientists have faced: the discovery of iron artifacts that date back to the Bronze Age. The fact of iron in the Bronze Age record (3200 BCE—1200BCE) goes against the idea that humanity had yet to have the knowledge and capability to smelt iron. This meant that while many scientists and archeologists suggested an extraterrestrial solution—meteors—there were people who could still argue: Aliens So far the limited testing that’s been done on Bronze Age iron has supported the meteorite theory. However, what has been hampering efforts to find out the exact makeup of more of these artifacts was the fear of destructive testing that would harm them. These scientists were able to find a way to non-destructively test the iron elements. Albert Jambon, from the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in France, studied museum artefacts from Egypt, Turkey, Syria, and China, analysing them using an X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer to discover they all shared the same off-world origins. "The present results complementing high quality analyses from the literature suggest that most or all irons from the Bronze Age are derived from meteoritic iron," writes Jambon in his published paper. Part of what differentiates iron that humans make and iron that comes from the sky is the level of nickel.

Nuts & Bolts: A guide to Democratic campaigns—preventing fundraising nightmares

Welcome back, Saturday Campaign D-I-Y’ers! For those who tune in, welcome to the Nuts & Bolts of a Democratic campaign. Each week, we discuss issues that help drive successful campaigns. If you’ve missed prior diaries, please visit our group or follow Nuts & Bolts Guide. Every couple of months I revisit fundraising. Not because fundraising is fun, or that it is the most important element, but because successful fundraising helps lay the groundwork for successful campaigns. Part of successful fundraising, though, is preventing fundraising nightmares. Fundraising is a difficult enough task as it is, why make it even more difficult by committing cardinal sins you can avoid before you start? We’ve covered organization in activism this year as well as candidates, and one thing they both share in common is the need to raise money to support their efforts.  Ready to talk about the big mistakes you should avoid?  Let’s go.
