I would bet dollars to dimes that the practice of collecting, if not using "extra-terrestial" metals goes back before the Bronze Age. Stone Age folks that can precisely chip rock tools likely have the discernment to identify, and the perception to figure-out how to pound these metal fragments into some desired shapes, if not just collect them as curiosities.
