Indigenous engravings found in northern Uruguay

After the projects carried out in the Department of Salto: Research and design of an archaeological park and Management and investigation of the prehistoric archaeological heritage (rock art), of the northern region of Uruguay, Many archaeological sites have been found that were previously unknown, thus increasing the cultural heritage and showing a communication system that existed for thousands of years through petroglyphs.

In the Uruguayan territory there is a large number of designs made by different techniques, such as scraping and pecking. These archaeological relics are in danger due to the sensitivity of the type of rock on which they are found, and therefore, a prompt response to these revelations is needed.

Leonel Cabrera Pérez is responsible for identifying and recording the findings, for which he has a large research team from the Faculty of Humanities and Education Sciences (FHCE) of Udelar.

Due to the great work they have done in recent years in the northern Uruguay A conference will be held on Monday, May 27 at 10.30 am in the Cassinoni room of the Faculty of Humanities and Education Sciences, with the name of "New discovery of indigenous engravings in the north of Uruguay by Dr. Leonel Cabrera Pérez”.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
