Archaeologists discover an ancient wall in La Catedral square in Tenerife

The archaeological works that take place in the Plaza de La Catedral, in San Cristóbal de la Laguna (Tenerife), have revealed a new stone floor and objects for daily use, probably from the 16th and 17th centuries, reported Mayor José Alberto Díaz.

Efraín Marrero, head of the prospecting, reported that they found that in a depth of one meter remains of walls could be found, just below what was uncovered when they carried out the works in the square.

«Taking this into account, two weeks ago we proceeded to remove the fill that was above the foundations that appeared, verifying that the fill that the square had is a fill made with rubble and with buildings that were attached to the church of Los Remedios . There it was detected that there were cobblestones, construction bricks, imported ceramics from the 16th and 17th centuries, metals, 18th century buttons in bone and wood«He explained.

Marrero commented that with the historical documentation they have, the filling was made with materials from the mid-19th century, stating that «now another soil has been discovered that they did not know and that extends outside the construction line that may be from the 16th and 17th centuries, but there are remains of bones and animals with which they can be dated«.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
