Excerpt from Preliminary Report on an Archeological Trip to the West Indies

Excavations in this cave Showed that it was once frequented by the aborigines, while pictographs on the walls gave other evidence of their former presence. There were found among the debris, on the oor, many. Fragments of the pottery peculiar to the islanders, and other evidences of primitive _life, among which were broken celts, bones of animals which had served for food, and also ashes and char coal. All of the implements and utensils were of ancient manufacture and so numerous that many people must have frequented this coast region and used this cave as their camping place. A few broken human bones were also uncovered, but whether they indicated former anthropophagous feasts or hurried interments could not be determined. The trenches dug in the cave oor through ten feet of débris showed, at all levels, art objects similar to those occurring on the surface, indicating no change in culture. There was no evi dence of any great modification between the life of the earlier and the later occupants, and no satisfactory proof that the occupancy of the cave was of very great antiquity.
