      Tracing ancient roots of Penn Museum's gold

      The scientist had traveled from Germany to examine the ancient items
      that lay before him on the University of Pennsylvania laboratory
      table, and he was dazzled.

      Earrings with cascades of golden leaves. Brooches adorned with tightly
      coiled spirals. A necklace strung with hundreds of gold ringlets and
      beads.

      The jewelry bore a striking resemblance to objects from one of the
      world's great collections - a controversial treasure unearthed long
      ago from the fabled city of Troy.

      With lots more....
