New Early Cave Art Discovered

Could this change things?

Puerto Rico's Mona Island is the location of newly discovered rock art that may change what we know about Pre-Columbian civilizations.The first humans on the island likely arrived there between 3000 and 2000 BC, but this art could mean some major discoveries about people from the 13th century, according to archeologists. Thousands of different pieces of art were discovered in the site.

Many of the pieces are thought to be religious in nature, providing a glimpse into the spirituality of the people who inhabited the island. The cave was a spiritual domain for these people, so it makes sense that the artwork found there might be of souls, gods, spirits or something of that nature.

What do you think of these findings and what do you think they mean for the historical community?
