DE LOS NOMBRES DE LAS CABRAS / ON THE NAMES OF THE GOATS
SILVIA NAVARRO MIGUEL G. MORALES
Immersed in colonial myths, an archaeologist visits the ancient “cueva houses” and interrogates the old shepherds, while searching for the remains of the Aborigines who once inhabited these places. The archaeological experience reveals the complexity of the map of power that builds the historical discourse of the Canary Islands.
