Cuban scientists have discovered new evidence of Paleolithic art in the central Cuban province of Cienfuegos.

Several tools made from limestone were found by researchers at a site located near the mouths of the Damuji and Anaya Rivers, in the municipality of Rodas.

The different implements date back some 7,000 years and are similar to those previously found at the Mayari site, in the eastern province of Holguin.

The large number of tools, around 20, and the size of the middens, suggest that aboriginal settlements in the Rodas —an area rich in fauna, forests and caves— were stable.

In addition to the tools, rock art was found in several caves, some of which served as astronomic observation sites, noted Marcos Evelio Rodriguez, part of the research team.
