In 1934, as part of a survey organized by the New York Academy of Sciences, in association with the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University and the American Museum of Natural History in New York, Froelich Rainey excavated several infant burials at Barrio Coto and Monserrate in which the infant is either under, or contained in, a pottery vessel. Documented urn burials in the Virgin Islands are noted. This practice is unusual and seems to be limited to a few locations in the Caribbean.
