Archaelogical Map of Lanzarote

There are many archaeological sites of interest in Lanzarote if you know where to look.

Thanks to the efforts of Memoria Lanzarote, we found a paper entitled “Avance de La Carta Arqueológica de Lanzarote” that was prepared by José de León Hernández and M* Antonia Perera Betancort, the following archaeological map took them 10 years to compile.

UD Lanzarote 2 CD Vera 1

There may have been rain but as far as UD Lanzarote were concerned the weekend couldn’t have been better. On Saturday, first placed team CD Marino lost whilst second placed side CD Mensajero drew. Lanzarote then came from behind on the Sunday to claim all three points and move within two points of top spot. A red hot weekend!

Neither side looked comfortable in the early stages but it was the Rojillos who were the first to threaten. A strike from winger Toñito was saved by the keeper and Rosmen nodded home the rebound only for the official on the far side to wave his yellow flag for offside and the goal was anulled.
