Gold has been treasured as a rare and precious material ever since it was first used in Britain nearly 4500 years ago. Our Chalcolithic (Copper Age) and Bronze Age gold objects still dazzle and amaze us. But there is much that we still need to find out about which sources of gold had been used, how objects were made, and how the know-how to extract and work gold was passed on.
Join geologist Dr Jana Horak and archaeologist Dr Alison Sheridan as they investigate these and other questions.
