A Shang Dynasty bronze-ware pot with lid and handle Wikepedia

The shang had a number of acomplishments that they are known for. One such acomplishment was the mastery of bronze casting. the early Shang Dynasty engaged in large-scale production of bronze-ware vessels and weapons. This production required a large labor force that could handle the mining, refining, and transportation of the necessary copper, tin, and lead ores. The shang priests are well known for the making of oracle bones. Oracle bones were bones that priests screatched questions asked by the ruler into. Heated metal rods were then stuck into the bones, causing them to crack. The priests interpreted the shapes of the creacks as answeres from the gods. the priests recorded the answers on the bones.
