In conjunction with special exhibition Gold of the Ancient Americas, conservators Kim Cullen Cobb, Ainslie Harrison, and Julie Lauffenburger will present a talk on the 1,000-year-old cemetery site of El Caño in central Panama. El Caño offers an exciting opportunity to answer some compelling questions: who are the people of this region and where did they come from? Gold, one of the most abundant and well preserved of the materials at El Caño, provides intriguing insights into the social hierarchy and cultural sophistication of this region.
