The statement "Bronze is considerably less brittle than iron." was nonsensical. I have deleted it. Pure iron is extremely flexible and ductile. However, this leaves the article without a coherent description of the mechanical properties of bronze, which were life-changing and of major importance for human cultural and economic development. Bronze age refers. Can anyone contribute factually accurate information here?? Plantsurfer (talk) 23:03, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
The wording about bronze being harder than wrought iron is wrong. Better source here. Arlosuave (talk) 04:21, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Introduction: 1st para, last sentence: "Historically the term latten was used for such alloys." Which alloys ? The context leaves it unclear whether latten refers to bronze or copper alloys. Please would someone knowledgeable correct this ? Thanks. Darkman101 (talk) 05:46, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
The subsection on bronze statues contains the following sentence:
Bronze sculptures, although known for their longevity, still undergo microbial degradation; such as from certain species of yeasts.
Following the link that was provided and searching the article on the other end, the only reference that I could find was a species of yeast that grows on modern plastic coatings put protectively on ancient bronze statues. There is nothing about the yeast attacking the bronze itself. I propose that this sentence and the accompanying reference be totally removed, since the statement is fictional and the linked article contains absolutely no information about bronze itself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lakewind Writing (talk • contribs) 18:07, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
