    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the golden spirals is that they were ancient batteries. These ringlets are quality made and very precise therefore they must have sophisticated tools. Gold makes an excellent air battery and the coils would have made more potent. A strong electrolyte like lye mixed with rainwater could have been used. Were any other metallic objects found? Perhaps silver? Silver makes a great capacitor and can even store energy produced by the human body when worn. It could be that the gold ringlets and other metal objects were components of a mechanical device. Why not simulate an air battery using one of the ringlets and test the results? This would make for an engaging activity for your museum visitors! PS: Please let me know if you would like a list of natural organic materials needed to create an air battery. I would be happy to provide you with a list. Please note I teach the poor how to make high quality charcoal batteries that can light an LED so they can read at night.

    Small silver spirals were sewn onto garments in patterns for decoration.
