Pioneers It is often overlooked that throughout the nineteenth century, most of the electrical experimenters, inventors and engineers who made these advances possible had to make their own batteries before they could start their investigations. the World was starting to emerge from the Stone Age. C., Mesopotamians (from modern day Iraq), who had already been active for hundreds of years in primitive metallurgy extracting metals such as copper from their ores, led the way into the Bronze Age when artisans in the cities of Ur and Babylon discovered the properties of bronze and began to use it in place of copper in the production of tools, weapons and armour.

They did not have the benefit of cheap, off the shelf, mass produced batteries. Bronze is a relatively hard alloy of copper and tin, better suited for the purpose than the much softer copper enabling improved durability of the weapons and the ability to hold a cutting edge.

REO produced a variety of cars and trucks (Speedwagons) until 1936 when car production ceased due to the effects of the depression.

Through a series of mergers, etc., REO trucks (under names like Diamond REO, REO Giant, etc.) continued to be produced until the 1990's. For those members in the Lansing MI area or planning a visit, the "Wanger REO Collection" is available at the Capital Area District Library. Peterson, donated to the REO Club Archives, the club now has location drawings.

One is "CE Marking" which is a compulsory marking found on many products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). The word "common" simply means that it is based on the most frequently used calendar system: the Gregorian Calendar.Of course, one has the option of interpreting the letter "C" in CE and BCE as referring to "Christian" or "Christ's," in place of "common." "CE" then becomes "Christian Era." "BCE" becomes "Before the Christian Era." The Abbreviations Dictionary does exactly this. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved.Many of the famous World events as detailed in the Technology Timeline describe famous, critical and major incidents.The specific period in history detailed in the Technology Timeline led to great changes in the development of World Civilisation.
