The Chalcolithic period refers to that part of Old World prehistory wedged between the first farming societies called Neolithic, and the urban and literate societies of the Bronze Greek, Chalcolithic means "copper age" (more or less), and indeed, the Chalcolithic period is generally--but not always--associated with wide-spread copper metallurgy.

Following this, the evidence for copper production within the settlement is examined. In particular, the remains of metallurgical installations, a smelting installation distinct from crucibles, are reported. In addition, new data on the chemical composition of ores, slag, and metallic copper from most recent excavations are evaluated.

Henderson’s book (Ref) reports a German study that [!] chemical analyses of copper-containing artifacts, with the aim of identifying “workshops”.

The find in June extends for additional years the earlier record of copper smelting from Rudna Glava, dated to 5th millennium BCE. Copper smelting technology gave rise to the Copper Age, aka Chalcolithic Age, and then the Bronze Age. The Bronze Age would not have been possible without humans developing smelting technology.

Tylecote, P.J. Boydell. The systematic archaeological study of the Timna Valley began over 50 years ago. Since then it has become a key site for understanding ancient copper production technologies in the Near East and beyond. However, the fantastic quantity of ground stone tools which are present at the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age copper smelting sites were never systematically studied.Esau, My Kingdom For A Drink.

- Homage To James Joyce On His 80Th Birthday. Some think copper smelting originated in what is today Iran, and spread through the region and to Europe. Copper artifacts have been found in the region that date to about 7, years of age.

A copper awl broadly dated from the Middle Chalcolithic period ( B.C.E.) was found in a woman's grave at Tell Tsaf, in the Beit She’an Valley.
