Análisis no destructivo, mediante haces de iones, de joyas y ornamentos propios de la metalurgia del oro de América prehispánica

José Luis Ruvalcaba Sil, Guy Demortier

Resumen


La metalurgia del oro en América nació hace más de 3.500 años en Perú (Lechtman, 1988: 344). Los conocimientos metalúrgicos comenzaron a desarrollarse paulatinamente y a propagarse hasta llegar a Mesoamérica a principios del período posclásico. Los conceptos del universo y de la relación hombre-naturaleza, los símbolos y los significados asociados a los metales preciosos, los recursos naturales y el papel del metal en la sociedad en los ámbitos religioso, político y social, determinaron el uso de los metales preciosos y el desarrollo de la tecnología metalúrgica de una manera muy particular y única en el mundo

Palabras clave


Metalurgia del oro; Orfebrería precolombina; joyas precolombinas; Historia de la metalurgia en América
