The Ball Game Played by the Aborigines of the Antilles

  • Ricardo E. Alegria (a1)


The study of the so-called juegos o corrales de los indios comprises one of the most interesting aspects of West Indian archaeology. The Archaeological Research Center of the University of Puerto Rico has devoted special attention to their study in the belief that these juegos stand in intimate relation with a number of problems of Caribbean archaeology, the solution of which cannot but lead to a clearer and more exact view of the aboriginal culture.
