They found an ancient tomb full of gold

A noble's tomb has been found in El Caño Archaeological Park in Panama, reports A Daily heritage. Ceramic and gold pieces were found in the resting place.

El Caño Archaeological Park is one of the most important sites in Panama. In the park there is a cemetery containing tombs and small stones that can be dated to the period between 700 and 1000 AD.

The site was discovered in 1925 when American explorer Hyatt Ferrel excavated three graves after finding ancient monoliths protruding from the ground on the banks of the Rio Grande. The first official excavations were carried out only in the 1970s. According to the Spanish's descriptions, there was once a civilization in the area characterized by a noble elite dressed in gold and rich craftsmanship.

According to a press release issued by the Panamanian Ministry of Culture, archaeologists recently discovered another tomb containing the remains and burial belongings of a distinguished man. Five gold plates, two gold pearl belts, four bracelets, two human-shaped earrings, a crocodile earring, a gold pearl necklace, five amber tooth earrings, two bells, bone flutes, bracelets, and hundreds of ceramic pieces were discovered.

“The tomb was built around 750 AD and contains the remains of a nobleman from Cocle, but there are other deceased people who died to accompany him to the afterlife,” said Dr. Julia Mayo, director of the El Caño Foundation. The investigation into the resting place is not yet complete.
