Do you know this illustrious gentleman?
Publicado: Thu 24 Mar 2011

Juan Bethencourt Alfonso was principally characterised for his work in historic and anthropological investigations from which we obtained many of the facts of our aborigine culture enabling us to decipher the guanche world. His work has been compared to Darwin's. Tylor 's or Broca's work; this is confirmed by the fact that the first guanche corpses found in Barranco Hondo, Tenerife, are in the Paris Museum of Anthropology. These corpses were sent there by Bethencourt Alfonso. His work, “Historia del pueblo Guanche” ( History of the Guanche Village) was finished one year before his death in 1912.
