Peruvian Gold Ancient Treasures Unearthed

Rich natural resources in ancient Peru gave rise to the earliest Andean civilizations. Building on that wealth, skilled artisans crafted extraordinary and beautiful objects, including gold ceremonial and funerary masks, beakers, and jewelry, rivaling anything made by the ancient Egyptians.

Archaeological finds over the past half century have begun to put these magnificent objects in context. Visitors will learn about the latest techniques for excavating tombs and examine how technology is offering new insights into the complex civilizations that existed in ancient Peru. The exhibition will journey through civilizations from 1250 B.C. to A.D. 1450, learning through the ceremonial gold, silver, ceramics, and textiles created by these sophisticated peoples.
