peruvian site yields a golden discovery - gold necklace earring set
Archaeologists may not be in fashion days, but they dig for antique jewelry.
Consider the discovery of 4,000-year-
Gold and stone beads in southeast Peru.
Mark Aldenderfer of the University of Arizona in Tucson and his colleagues said that these carefully crafted items were the oldest example of processed gold in the United States before 600, and were string into a necklace.
Dig a burial pit in a small place called Jiskairumoko that contains the remains of parts of adults and children and discover this ancient gold necklace.
Nine gold beads and 11 stone beads are interspersed in a circle under the lower jaw of an adult.
