Ancient Egyptians smelting. Computer illustration of ancient Egyptians smelting bronze in the city of Per Ramessu, or Pi Ramesse. The workers are seen melting the ore in clay bowls over fires at centre left, and carrying the bowls between sticks to a mould for making ingots (lower right). A pile of cooled ingots is seen at upper right. Per Ramessu was the capital of Egypt at various stages during its history, notably during the reign of Ramses II (1279-1213 BC), who built beautiful gardens, orchards and ornamental waterways there.
