    Lost Cave People[1] Cody Lost Cave People[1] Cody Presentation Transcript

    • Lost Cave People
    • Findings
      • Scientists found small pieces of cloth and a mirror with some cloth on the back of it.
      • Another thing that they found is an incense burner. The scientists think that the burners were used for sacrifice. Food, clothes, and body parts were burned. The Zoque did this as offerings to the gods.
      • The biggest thing the scientists discovered was a burial site that they called El Tigre.
    • Difficulties
      • The explorers had a hard time in central and southern Mexico. They had to deal with fierce tigers and deadly snakes.
      • More people in that area died from snake bites that from tigers.
      • The area was also very remote so they could not get vehicles to the area.
    • What we Learned
      • We learned that the Zoque was the first civilization in Mesoamerica.
      • Another fact that we learned is that the Zoque developed cloth and the mirror.
      • Archeology made an enormous contribution to our knowledge of this civilization.
    • Location
      • Scientists believe that the Zoque people lived in central Mexico because the Maya lived there. The Mayan were descendants of the Zoque so they inhabited the same place. They did not travel to new places.
      The red area is where scientists believe that the Zoque people lived .
