The El Caño Archaeological Project has generated and continues to generate thousands of data of different nature about the Leadership of Rio Grande. Before interpreting this data we, the archaeologists, face the difficult task of conducting classification and analytical documentation. To organize and share the data that we generate individually we are using a specific data management software called DLO (Digital Learning Objects). All the materials found in El Caño are classified here along with the information referenced to the chronological and spatial contexts in which they were found and the anthropometric data resulting from the studies conducted on the bones found in the tombs at the site.
The characteristics of this software allow us to disseminate our data and our work among the general public, students, and researchers around the world, since it can be accessed online, which broadens our efforts in the development of archaeological research and it is a space for consultations among users. In the absence of a National Archaeology Museum that we hope can come soon, this can be used as an initial display of the archaeological collections of El Caño.
