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.
