Arqueología aborigen de Cuba

Este libro sobre los angeles arqueología de Cuba, satislace una necesidad de nuestra cultura.
Estudiar las más remotas raíces de las culturas ancestrales desarrolla­das en nuestro medio, será siempre interesante para las nuevas genera­ciones, a más de útil. Todo lo que iortalezca l. a. identidad de nuestra patria ha de redundar en beneficio de los angeles cultura common y, por ende, de los angeles humanidad.

En l. a. década de los años forty los conocí en los angeles entonces novel Sociedad Espeleológica de Cuba, fundada el 15 de enero de 1940, institución que ha tenido el mérito de haber desarrollado, en indisoluble contacto con los angeles naturaleza, algunas disciplinas, entre éstas, l. a. Geografía, Carsología, Arqueología y otras. Es necesario destacar que por aquel entonces period muy rara l. a. juventud exploradora. los angeles mayoría de nuestros investigadores había desarrollado mucho de su hard work en bibliotecas y laboratorios. El mérito del movi­miento científico impulsado por los angeles Sociedad Espeleológica fue vincular una generación de jóvenes cubanos al ámbito directo de sus vocaciones. De aquellos jóvenes, unos culminaron sus estudios autodidácticos, como Ramón Dacal y otros, como Rivero de l. a. Calle, los realizaron en los centros de enseñanza greater. Al ultimate, ambos se encontrarían en las aulas de l. a. Universidad de los angeles Habana: Dacal en los angeles de Arqueología, propiamente dicha, y Rivero inmerso en los angeles de Antropología Física.

In this village Pizarro quartered his men, and made himself comfortable. He was now with about two hundred men in the heart of Peru, a thickly settled country of thousands of Indians, who could destroy him at any time they saw fit. But the Indians were superstitious, timid, and not warlike; while the Spaniards had horses and guns, and were long accustomed to war. Pizarro fortified his town as best he could, and then sent his own brother, with forty men, to Atahualpa's camp to ask him to pay the Spaniards a visit.

This expedition created consternation in England, and everybody was hurried on board ships to fight the Spaniards. Hardly had the Armada sailed out of the harbor before a severe storm scattered the English ships; so that, later on, Drake and the other English sea captains fought the enemy singly. Fortunately, the English ships were light and were able to sail all around the big, heavy Spanish ships, doing them much damage and not suffering much themselves. The Armada circled the British Isles, meeting storm after storm, and pursued and harried by the English.

Perhaps they were still seeking the Fountain of Youth. One day, they were attacked by the Indians, and De Leon was wounded by an arrow. His followers put him on board ship and sailed away to Cuba. Here De Leon died of his wounds, with all his hopes unfulfilled. De Soto Discovers the Mississippi HERNANDO DE SOTO had been with Pizarro in Peru, and had seen there the temples all plated with gold. He was eager for conquests and wealth of his own, and called for volunteers to follow him into the unexplored lands which lay northward.
