Beyond El Dorado: Power and Gold in Ancient ColombiaFeaturing up to 150 masterworks from the Gold Museum in Bogota, Colombia, alongside pieces from the British Museum's own collection, this exhibition examines the ritual that lies behind the myth of El Dorado and the 'Lost City of Gold' that kept European explorers fascinated for more than two centuries. The legend of a lost city of gold in South America was in fact inspired by a ritual which took place at Lake Guatavita, near modern Bogota. The newly elected leader, covered in powdered gold, dived into the lake and emerged as the new chief of the Muisca people who lived in the central highlands of present-day Colombia's Eastern Range. Beyond El Dorado displays some of the fascinating objects excavated from the lake in the early 20th century including ceramics and stone necklaces dating back as far as 1600 BC.
