Copper and tin alloy is known as bronze the article should have named it as such. Bronze has been known in China for at least 5000 years. If it was submerged in low oxygen conditions surrounded by wet organic matter, it is not unexpected to have been well-preserved. The amazing sword is not the first nor only such masterpiece object found in China.
