Amerindian burial site under siege

Amerindian burial site under siege

by Curlan Campbell, NOW Grenada

Archaeologists are fighting to preserve an indigenous Amerindian site in the north of the island after heavy sea surge exposed and is eroding a burial ground.

A team from Leiden University led by Professor Dr Corinne Hofman has been permitted by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture to conduct small-scale excavations in Sauteurs in a bid to salvage the skeleton remains before they are forever lost. Their involvement became necessary after residents reported skeletal remains and artefacts being washed up on the beach.
