Conservation at El Caño
Join us to hear Ainslie Harrison, assistant conservator at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, discuss the excavation and conservation of artifacts at El Caño, a 1000 year old archaeological site in central Panama. Working under the auspices of the Smithsonian Museum Conservation Institute, Ainslie traveled to Panama seasonally from 2009-15 to assist in the safe excavation, study and stabilization of priceless tomb artifacts made of gold, worked stone, whale and jaguar teeth, ray spines, shell, resin and ceramic.
