Zooarchaeology of the West Indies

Animals from prehistoric sites in the West Indies

Colonization of the West Indies occurred in several waves: first people with Archaic culture colonized western Cuba from Middle America; then Archaic and Ceramic Age people migrated from northeastern South America up the Lesser Antillean island chain, ultimately colonizing the entire West Indies and Bahamas. Finally, Europeans explored and dominated the entire region.
