Archaelogical finds
The Government of Fuerteventura is investigating the dates of two archaeological pieces, a necklace bead carved and perforated in fragment of mollusc and another sandstone rock, with apparent small human forms, which was found by a local resident in a ravine.

Marcial Morales, President of the Government of Fuerteventura presented both pieces together with councillors of Historical Heritage and Museums, Juan Jimenez and Jose Juan Herrera Martel, as well as Seprona agents and the adviser of the Canarian Government for Historical Heritage, Luis Mata, and the person who found these archaeological remains, Juan Jose Alonso.
Morales said “Both pieces will be subject to investigation and these findings also ratifies the archaeological potential of the area where they were found, which would be added to the rich heritage of the island.”
Juan Jimenez explained that before any finding of this type of heritage, the established protocol should be followed, and immediately notify Seprona or Environmental Government Agents, who will transfer the pieces to the Historical Heritage technicians to establish their historical, cultural and ethnographic value.”
Luis Mata stressed “There is an importance for protecting and researching the heritage of Fuerteventura, and fundamental for this will be the forthcoming opening of the Insular Archaeological Museum of Betancuria. This will be ‘key’ both for the education of young people and for scientific studies.”
