Very interesting. They may have to change their dating of the iron age. Thank you.

Knowing about such uses of meteoric iron, I've often thought it would make a good QI trick question. "When did people first use iron?" "Um... the Iron Age?" AROOGAH! AROOGA!

Cool but not particularly surprising given that several pieces of Ancient Egyptian jewelry, particularly one from Tut's tomb, are made with an odd pale green stone that turned out to be "glass" formed by a meteor impact.

Not surprising. They made use of almost anything they came across.
