The history of New World goldsmithing is still incomplete, but there is enough archaeological evidence to trace its origin and movements through the Americas where the legend of El Dorado attracted the conquistadores. The first part of this catalog contains six chapters by different scholars on such topics as the discoveries in Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Peru or the effects of pre-Columbian gold brought back to Europe on the 16th-century Europeans.
