In Cuba open new archaeological museums
In Cuba open new archaeological Museum, dedicated to the life and culture of aborigines, inhabiting separate territories of the island hundreds and thousands of years ago.
The first exhibition of the new archaeological Museum of Cuba, about the life of ancient communities on the Western Peninsula of Guanahacabibes, planned to open in the near future. Now in the San Juan river, not far from “black Lagoon” will house exhibition areas of the Museum, under construction, and in the vicinity of the valley are ongoing archaeological excavations – scientists continue to extract various household items of the ancient inhabitants of the island: mortar, chisel, dyeing the stones.
Another archaeological Museum opens in Cuba this year – it will be located in the province of Ciego de Avila, in the town of Los Buchillones. It is known that in the vicinity of this locality were found numerous artifacts, telling about the life of aborigines, who inhabited the province for more than seven centuries ago. Scientists-archaeologists involved in the formation of the exhibitions of the new Museum, claim that the audience will be presented a huge number of exhibits, which prove that local communities managed to survive in the confrontation with the conquistadors – previously it was thought that the Spanish conquerors utterly destroyed the natives that inhabited the island in ancient times of the great navigators and not less great discoveries.
The construction of new museums of archaeology, according to scientists, will allow tourists to access new, previously little-known pages of history of the island, as well as to more deeply introduce travelers to the rich culture of the oldest communities in Cuba.
