    Ginto: History Wrought in Gold

    Ramon Villegas

    Winner, National Book Award, Social Science, 2004
    Book design by BG Hernandez Photography by Wig Tysmans, BG Hernandez, and Ramon Cantonjos
    This book focuses solely on the Gold Collection of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, cataloguing its holdings exhaustively. The book is an attempt at a historical narrative about the Philippines before 1500, drawn from the in-depth study of techniques and designs in Philippine gold artifacts, the few extant primary sources, scattered archeological data, and wide-ranging cultural studies. The Bangko Sentral Gold Collection is part of the national heritage not only because of its material value, but more importantly because it is a legacy from a golden age.
