So the Bronze Age or any era of bronze can  occur where both copper and tin are both present, so many historians might actually have used scientists's rresearch from archaeological sites to dtermine if both copper and tin were in a certain area at the time period the bronze age is to believe to have occurred. Historians will also use ancient texts and objects they find. If they find something, that's good because the chances of them peicing together an acccurate hypothesis of events is much higher with physical evidence. The onmy problem is many historians disagree with the accuracy of certain textual sources found, and the objects such as weapons, armor, tools, and jewery can easily be misinterpreted in terms of use. 

A lot of history is just guessing, but if they can find enough sources, and prove they are from the time period suggested, and also link that to how events after that were effected to produce the same results in history, then they have a case that could possibly be what happenend. 

The thing about hhistory is that no one get's to make it up or make suggestions. A certain set of events happened everywhere at the same time, and the results it produced caused more results leading all the way into now. Keep that in mind when  hear historians say "this was probably used for..."  they don't know. A lot of history will never be known. But there are some very import ant events in history that could change your life, and it's very much worth pondering and uncovering for yourself how truthful and accurate it actdually is.
