Evidence Indicates Human Presence in Cuba 8,000 Years Ago

Some of the sites found were tagged human dwelling because there was evidence of food, tools and trash, which all show that those sites were once ancient communities inhabited by humans.

"Others functioned as rest stops, since they are areas ... without evidence of prolonged habitation made by ... mobile communities that moved periodically but repeated their stays, as well as inhabited caves," Jimenez Santander said to Fox News Latino.

He also went on to say there are signs that indicate the use of caves for burials, ceremonies, cave painting sites, shell workshops to make vessels and other objects that further suggest the presence of humans.
