The land of the Golden Fleece is a legendary country, but the Greeks were
impressed by the Colchis region of Georgia. A 'golden fleece' may have existed
in this area, it was thought that the Colchis civilisation used sheeps skins to filter
gold from the waters of the rivers that flowed from the Caucasus mountains.
The skins would be dried and beaten to release the gold content !!
