Coffins and Grave Robbing

This trench excavated by looters at the site of Rontoy exposed not a pre-Columbian tomb, but a coffin of the colonial period. People living nearby say that the Rontoy ruins were used as a burial ground for Chinese slaves brought to the area. Photo by Margaret Brown Vega, 2006.
