Digging into Fuerteventura's past.

Excavating in the past of Fuerteventura through a diagnostic study that seeks to evaluate the state of the archaeological sites that are distributed throughout the island territory.

The Cabildo of Fuerteventura has initiated a diagnostic study with the purpose of evaluating the current state of the archaeological sites distributed throughout the island. This initiative seeks to provide an update to the archaeological chart of Fuerteventura and lay the foundations for a next conservation plan that ensures the protection and enhancement of the various sites present in the area.

Under the direction of Rayco León, the Department of Cultural Heritage has entrusted the development of this project to a multidisciplinary team of the company Tibicena, Arqueología y Patrimonio, recognized for its extensive experience in the field of archaeology in the Canary Islands and heritage management.

The first elements catalogued in the Archaeological Inventory of Fuerteventura date from campaigns carried out between 1987 and 1994, with a subsequent update between 2008 and 2011. However, due to the time lapse, it is essential to carry out a complete study to update these records and establish the necessary measures to ensure the conservation of the sites.

According to the counselor Rayco León, "what we are doing is laying the first stone from which we will elaborate the next measures. From this study will be born the rest of the actions that will allow to preserve the deposits and continue to disseminate the values that treasures the patrimonial legacy of Fuerteventura ".

Among the main threats that put at risk the valuable Archaeological Heritage of Fuerteventura, the alterations generated by human activity stand out, such as unregulated traffic, the opening of unauthorized roads and intentional looting. In addition, climatic influences, such as floods and erosive effects, are also added.

In the register of the island of Fuerteventura there are a total of 747 archaeological sites, distributed as follows: 58 in Betancuria, 148 in Antigua, 170 in La Oliva, 99 in Puerto del Rosario, 113 in Tuineje and 159 in Pájara.
