Update!


In the past, it had been assumed that a society needed to be settled to produce agricultural surpluses that can support activities such as making ornamental objects, he explained.



But the people living in this region at the time were still primarily hunter-gatherers, he said. "They were on their way to becoming settled peoples, but they were not quite there yet."



Someone, though, had the time and knowledge to make this ornament, which he speculates is a sign of importance.



"These folks are obtaining this by their effort, accumulating more wealth and using objects for prestige," Aldenderfer said. It says: "Pay attention to me, I'm successful."



There is no evidence at the site that shows how it was made, he said. But it looks like a nugget of native raw gold, which occurs near the area, was pounded flat in a stone mortar and pestle.



The researchers restrung the necklace, alternating nine small gold tubes with a series of round stones, identified as either greenstone or turquoise, with holes in them that were found in the same grave.



The next oldest gold ornaments found in this hemisphere, also located in Peru but farther north, date to about 600 years later than this necklace, Aldenderfer said.

Heck yeah, man! That was hysterical, when she went to jail... I got
sentenced to 30 days for same... back in the 80's...

Jay Leno said that Paris Hilton filed a lawsuit against the jail, claiming
the bed sheets & pillows gave her crabs & lice; ; ;

But immediately afterwards, the bed sheets & pillows issued a
statement, saying:

"NO, NO, she gave US crabs & lice!"
