Marcos Martinon-Torres, University College London, shares the latest analysis of scientific research on Muisca goldwork from Colombia.
The research shows the skills and errors of individual artists, a peculiar use of gold which challenges our perception of this precious metal, and offers a new interpretation of the famous raft of El Dorado.
