Lead has been known for thousands of years.
Alchemists believed Lead could be turned into Gold.
Since Lead absorbs radiation, heavy Lead blankets are placed on people when they have x-rays done.
Lead is highly resistant to corrosion, so Lead and its alloys have many applications.
Lead products include drain pipes and ammunition.
