The Lucayan prehistory of the Bahamas

posted Oct 13, 2015, 7:42 AM by John Maly

There's a great article on Bahama Pundit about the various groups that once lived in the Caribbean:

I've also posted a map with original Lucayan/Arawakan placenames for the various islands of the Caribbean under the Files section of this website.  In the Bahamas, particularly, a lot of the original placenames have stuck and are still used today.

The Arimoroa

I just added a December 1973 photo of the wreck of the Arimoroa.  It's easy to see why dive books of the era referred to the Arimoroa as looking like she were merely at anchor.  She could be seen as far away as Current until the wreck was broken in half by a hurricane.

The Zelma Rose

Once I figured out that the Zelma Rose began with a "Z" instead of an "S", I discovered several articles about the wreck.  Will see if I can find/make an MP3 of the song of the same name.

Species unique to Eleuthera's caves

posted Nov 21, 2010, 9:27 PM by John Maly

I've added some research papers to the Files section, and descriptions of several species of animals which are unique to Eleuthera under the Caves and Underwater Sites sections of the site.  I'll post additional papers as I get them.
