STRI postdoctoral researcher Julia Mayo, from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, was recently appointed STRI associate scientist. Mayo, a Panamanian archaeologist, is leading the El Caño Archaeological Project, from her laboratories in the Center for Tropical Paleontology and Archaeology.
The watershed of Rio Grande in Coclé, where El Caño is located, is known for the discovery of large and ostentatious graves in Sitio Conte, during the 30's and 40's.
The El Caño project aims at investigating the past use of a complex of sculpted and unsculpted basalt columns lined up within Park limits. Some of these structures can be seen, but most of them are buried. Mayo and collaborators are conducting archaeological excavations at the site to discover the nature and function of the buried structures, which are revealed thanks to geophysical prospecting conducted in 2005 and 2006.

A few years ago, after having worked at Sitio Conteâ€"also marked by ancient monolithsâ€"archaeologist Julia Mayo of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute decided to reinvestigate El Caño.

Surrounding this golden chief are at least 25 carefully arranged bodies, making the assemblage the largest of the six El Caño burials revealed to date, according to Mayo, who received funding from the Panamanian government as well as the National Geographic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration and Expeditions Council. (The Society owns National Geographic News.)
Among the corpses golden attire for a child, possibly the chief's son: tiny gold plates, bracelets, earrings, and a necklace of semiprecious stones.
At the bottom of the pit, the chief himself was supported by a sort of platform created from the tight arrangement of 15 bodies.
Mayo believes those individuals could be war captives or slaves who were sacrificed or committed suicideâ€"a potential link to Sitio Conte, where similar burial arrangements have been found.

Though the plates' significance is not yet clear, Mayo said they appear to have been made specifically to cover the corpses. The plates, she noted, are decorated only on what would normally be there undersides and were placed facedown on the bodies.

El 'Dorado de Panamá', el sueño de riqueza de los españoles hace 500 años, fue descubierto en el sitio El Caño, en el hallazgo arqueológico más importante del país de los últimos 70 años, reveló hoy la experta panameña Julia Mayo.
"Se ha encontrado 'El Dorado de Panamá' y éste se halla en Coclé', en El Caño, unos 180 kilómetros al oeste de la capital panameña, dijo Mayo, en referencia a la leyenda de los españoles en busca de grandes tesoros de oro hace cinco siglos.
El descubrimiento, de hecho aparecerá en la edición de enero de la revista 'National Geografic' (NG) para América Latina, con su portada dedicada a una de las figuras localizadas a raíz de nuevas excavaciones en desarrollo desde hace unos cuatro años.
Mayo, asociada del Instituto Smithsonian de Investigaciones Tropicales (STRI) y presidenta de la Fundación El Caño, al mando de 30 especialistas desarrolló nuevos estudios en el sitio con auspicios de NG y de la Secretaría Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (Senacyt).
