CANADA
TORONTO  •  Royal Ontario Museum  •  Ongoing
 
Golden treasures from the Sicán civilization, a mysterious pre-Incan people who prospered off the northern coast of Peru as early as AD 700. This extraordinary exhibition showcases over 150 elaborately-crafted headdresses, crowns, pieces of pottery and jewellery, uncovered in an undisturbed, gold-filled tomb that is one of modern archaeology’s greatest finds.
