Few of Costa Rica's archeological sites have been studied extensively, and even fewer are accessible to the public, says National Museum anthropologist Francisco Corrales. Besides Guayabo National Monument (in Turrialba), which has fairly easy access and protects complex ruins of dwellings, roads, bridges and aquaducts surrounded by tropical rain forest, the remainder of Costa Rica's archaeological sites are very difficult to get to.

Inside Guanacaste National Park, "there is an area on the side of Orosi Volcano covered with volcanic rocks that are decorated with petroglyphs that are of enormous significance to Costa Rican archaeology simply because of its restricted access to the public," says Corrales. Visits to the petroglyphs can be arranged, but only with advance permission from park administrators.
Corrales said other archaeological remains are dispersed throughout the country, many inside national parks but many more are located on private lands, which limits access, research, conservation and maintenance of the sites.
"We have lacked government funds to tend to these archaeological sites," he said, "and unfortunately, there has been a lack of private support, which, coordinated through the Museum, could fund the study and preservation of these sites. While the country has done a good job protecting its ecological jewels, Corrales finds "no correlation between the protection of the natural and protection of the archaeological. Nevertheless, the National Museum has made a valiant effort to recreate the customs, traditions and way of life of pre-Columbian cultures for the general public.

In the zone of Dominicalito, a petroglyph is reported that displays stone drawings that correspond to spirals and several lines that finish in points (Corrales 2002). (Zilberg 1982) reports diverse categories found within a number of elements and the overeall similarity to those found in the south-east of Costa Rica.

We also had a report from Dr. Francisco Corrales, archeologist for the National Museum who sent his Archeological findings and recommendations.
We departed from this third meeting with specific assignments for discovery, and for raising $300 for the documentation for the association. We are to meet Monday evening, the 28th of June for a re-grouping with Vincent and Scott, even more members of the community and hopefully Dr. Corrales and the new mayoral candidate, Luis Centera from Palmar Norte.

Costa Rican National Museum announces new discovery of pre-Columbian stone spheres | Villas Costa Rica

Francisco Corrales, a leading anthropologist at Costa Rica's National Museum has stated that the three new spheres were located together, with two of the objects measuring 25cm in diameter and the third slighter smaller at 16cm wide. Corrales adds that the spheres had not been disturbed since they were first buried.

This incredible find has been linked to the previous discovery of four spheres located only 6 meters away. According to Corrales, the added discovery of anthropomorphic and zoomorphic artifacts including a 50cm tall sculpture with feline features has helped contextualize the significance of the nearby spheres. Corrales believes that Batambal was used for funeral rites and other symbolic activities in the Chiriqui era and considers the spheres to be important objects used in ceremonial acts.
