Extinct animal bones and stone tools found in underwater Caribbean cave

An underwater cave off the coast of the Dominican Republic has been discovered, containing the bones of extinct animals and stone tools, marking the first evidence of human life in the region.

Before this discovery, the IU archaeology team studied Caribbean fossils and artifacts dating back 500 years – about the time of Columbus. The new finds date back anywhere from 4,000-10,000 thousand years.

The scientists and students say they are looking forward to their next trip to the cave, which may be this week.
