University of the West Indies finds proof of ancient people

Breaking News

AN archaeological team has found more evidence on a site at St John's Road, South Oropouche, that people lived there 7,000 years ago.

The site is as old as that of the famed Banwari Man, whose remains were found in San Francique, Penal, 40 years ago.

The two sites are about five kilometres apart.

It means that the site, among the oldest in the Caribbean, may see a rewriting of secondary school history.

Proof of the antiquity of the St John's Road site has come, in part, from the research done by Dr Basil Reid, senior lecturer with the Department of History at the University of the West Indies.
