In Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain), a unique cemetery dated to the 15th and 17th centuries was discovered adjacent to an ancient sugar plantation with funerary practices that could be related to enslaved people. In this article, we investigate the origin and possible birthplace of each individual buried in this cemetery, as well as the identity and social status of these people.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/45692||ISSN:||0002-9483||DOI:||10.1002/ajpa.22879||Source:||American Journal of Physical Anthropology [ISSN 0002-9483], v. 159, p. 300-312|
