Marcos Martinón-Torres has been invited to give a lunchtime lecture at the British Museum on 14 November.

At this event, Marcos will share the latest analysis of scientific research on Muisca goldwork from Colombia, showing the skills and errors of individual artists, a peculiar use of gold which challenges our perception of this precious metal, and offer a new interpretation of the famous raft of El Dorado.

While this event is free, booking is essential.
