Wednesday, November 13, 2013
MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA—Construction workers have discovered a tomb thought to have been built by the Aburraes Indians in Medellin’s La Colinita de Guayabal neighborhood. So far, archaeologists from Colombia’s culture ministry, who will work with archaeologists from the University of Paris as the project continues, have uncovered weaving wheels, gold nose rings, ceramics, and coal from the burial. The Aburraes Indians were nearly wiped out by the diseases and hard labor brought by the Spanish in the sixteenth century.
