Seashells

Several shells were discovered by Dominican Archaeologists within the several neighboring plazas at La Aleta. After recovery the shells were cleaned and identified. It believed that these shells are possible remnants of the Taino culture. Additional research is underway to determine the date of origin and possible cultural use by the Taino.
