Argyle Archaeology

As part of the preparation for the Argyle International Airport, several archaeological teams have been working ay the Argyle site.

A Canadian team led by Margarita De Guzman and Jode Macay, assisted by several international volunteers, have been excavating a Carib Indian site. The photographs below are from the Searchlight Newspaper for March 25, 2011.

In addition, an Egyptian team did an analysis of petroglyphs in the Yambou area to see if they can be moved for preservation. However the unrest in Egypt has made it difficult for them to return this spring.
