Penn Museum Exhibits Gold from Ancient Panama

For more than a thousand years, a cemetery on the banks of the Rio Grande Coclé in Panama lay undisturbed, escaping the attention of gold seekers and looters. The river flooded in 1927, scattering beads of gold along its banks.

In 1940, a Penn Museum team led by archaeologist J. Alden Mason excavated at the cemetery, unearthing spectacular finds.

Human effigy pendant of gold, copper, silver alloy, Sitio Conte, Panama, ca. 700-900CE.
Large golden plaques and pendants with animal-human motifs were found, precious and semi-precious stone, ivory, and animal bone ornaments, and literally tons of detail-rich painted ceramics.

It was extraordinary evidence of a sophisticated Precolumbian people, the Coclé, who lived, died, and painstakingly buried their dead long ago.


Long overshadowed by research on other indigenous Central and South American peoples, the Coclé, who lived from about 700 to 900 CE, remain mysterious.


Emerald Pendant, Sitio Conte, Panama, ca. 700-900 CE.
Beneath the Surface: Life, Death, and Gold in Ancient Panama opens February 7, 2015 at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia with visitors encouraged to explore the history, archaeological evidence, and new research perspectives of the Coclé.

2017 Ford GT Hypercar

The Ford GT isn't available yet, but if you want one, start saving now. The car is a mid-engine twin-turbo V-6 good for more than 600 hp, full carbon-fiber construction and body panels, and active aerodynamics. Power will be sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Said force is transmitted to the rear wheels with 20-inch alloy wheels wearing specially designed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.

The all-new GT starts production in 2016.

Ford has taken a page out of Ferrari’s book, and given the GT an F1-inspired steering wheel with all the needed controls for car function mounted to it. This opens up the steering column and gives uncluttered access to the shift paddles used to control the ’GTs transmission.
The GT should easily break the four-second barrier in the 60-mph sprint, and top speed should be in the 200-mph range.

Ford indicated it would be priced competitively with the Lamborghini Aventador – which carries a base sticker price approaching $400,000
