The earliest rivet is a small stud wood or bone, the earliest metal deformation is likely to be the ancestors of the rivet we know today. There is no doubt that they are metallic connection method of the oldest known to mankind, can be traced back to the original use wrought metal so far, for example: the Bronze Age egyptians used rivet type slotted wheel perimeter of the six wooden door riveting fastening together, form the greeks after successfully cast in bronze statue of large, reoccupy rivet riveting components together.
