The Egyptian Museum in Cairo houses a Meteoric Iron Knife from King Tutankhamun’s Tomb.  Ancient Man would have thought Meteorites to be a gift from the skies.  Man made weapons like swords, knives, spears and arrow heads from meteorites.  Found in the form of meteorites that have impacted the Earth’s surface.
