Tin has been known for thousands of years.
Cassiterite, or Tin Oxide, is the main source of Tin.
Tin is used mainly as a coating for other metals to prevent corrosion or other chemical action.
Tin cans are actually steel cans coated with Tin; this helps to preserve the food.
Pewter, solder, and bronze are Tin alloys.
