Primitive tools found in Cuba

Published on March 12th, 2010 | by Admin


Five polished axes, 25 chisels made out of sea shells, and pottery have been found in Villa Clara, Cuba.

An archeologist from the Provincial Center for Environmental Studies and Services, Rául Villavicencio, confirmed that five polished axes, 25 chisels made from sea shells, and various ceramic fragments were found.

Villavicencio said that previously the area had only produced archaeological evidence of hunter-gatherer civilizations.

The new find was made in firm ground, 600 meters from the coast, leading investigators to believe that the area might have been a settlement with houses built on piles very close to the water with agricultural fields inland by more fertile land.

Researchers have still not determined if the objects are the result of cultural exchanges with ceramist civilizations relatively close to the area or produced by the inhabitants of the area.
