Guampedia debuts 'Ancient Guam' section

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Guampedia debuted a new section to its web site today, revealing stories and investigations on archeological studies and techniques done on the Ancient Chamorro Era. The addition includes photos and videos demonstrating some of the practices and ancient traditions our ancestors did.

It also provides articles profiling our ancestors and explorers as well as identifies the original names of places on the island.

Guampedia content editor Dominica Tolentino told KUAM News, "This new section focuses primarily on the ancient era of Guam's history which goes back about 35 hundred years ago up to about when the Spanish first started coming to the region, so these articles are based on archeological reports they're not the reports themselves but archeologist have written them."

You can view the new features at Guampedia.com.
