Ancient Romans mass-produced metal ware

Scientists have found evidence indicating that ancient Romans used methods to mass produce low-cost metal ware. 

Technical University of Munich scientists studied a bronze figure of the god Mercury made in the 2nd century CE and found that it was hollow and its legs were made separately as in an assembly line. 

The statue, borrowed from Munich’s Archaeological Museum, was blasted with neutrons to reveal metal joins invisible to X-rays.
