SEBORUCO HEADLAND (FARALLÓN DE SEBORUCO), MAYARÍ
This National Monument is located next to the city of Mayarí, in the north-eastern province of Holguín where archaeological evidence has been found of aboriginal dwellings of an ancient nomad community.
The findings include cave drawings, ilex knives, food remains as well as human bones and bones of extinct mammals. The dating of the human bones using C14 evidenced that they were over 5 000 years old and that these men were not Arahuacos, but came from Northern America, probably during the glaciations of Wisconsin, migrating from Florida to the Bahamas, some few kilometres north of Cuba during that period. The Arahuacos that came from northern Venezuela arrived later.
