More than a beautifully illustrated exhibit catalogue, this volume includes essays by leading scholars who use the Gilcrease collection to discuss the rise of metallurgy in the Western Hemisphere, the symbolic significance of gold in Gran CoclE culture, and the influence of Pre-Columbian gold on world economies. The contributors also provide a survey of archaeological excavations in the region, including a discussion of Gilcrease's important collection of CoclE ceramics.
