In Mount Timna the first copper mine in the world is found. The copper mines and mine shafts in Timna park can be seen all around the park, as well as remains of melting furnaces that date from ancient imperial Egypt.    Copper was the first metal used to create domestic and work tools which is why Timna was of great importance in the ancient world.
