Cuba - Archaeological Landscape of the First Coffee Plantations in the South-East of Cuba

"The remains of the 19th-century coffee plantations in the foothills of the Sierra Maestra are unique evidence of a pioneer form of agriculture in a difficult terrain. They throw considerable light on the economic, social, and technological history of the Caribbean and Latin American region."
