One of the many fascinating aspects of Playa Escondida includes the wealth of ancient ceramics to be found. We would love amateurs, students, and professionals in this field to help us find and identify these pieces. Our collection consists mainly of shards, as it is rare to find a fully intact example near the surface, on the beach, or in the riverbed. But the abundance of it suggest that much more could be found further underground.
We are reluctant to dig deeper without professional guidance, for fear of damaging some treasures. There are "tola-like" mounds where the fragments are so numerous, they're like gravel! It is obvious that this site facilitated large populations over the centuries, at least as far back as a few hundred years before the birth of Christ.
