    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Ricardo Velasquez, National Museum archaeologist, reported that two Spanish necklaces were found in an Indian burial site in San Ramon, which is a very important discovery because it is the first evidence of contact between the indigenous people and Spaniards in the area.

    Yesterday afternoon it was confirmed that the tomb discovered in San Ramón, while in the middle of building a house, was from the pre-Hispanic period.

    Finding these among the human remains, which according to Velasquez are very important because they are well-preserved, proves contrary to other sites in different areas where the conditions of the soil caused the artifacts and bodies to disintegrate.

    “They were in Costa Rica and we now have proof that the Spaniards traded with the Indians thanks to the glass bead necklaces. They are the best documentation of contact in the sixteenth century,” said Velasquez.
