"Surinam, once known as Dutch Guiana, is one of South America's smallest countries. It enjoys a relatively high standard of living but also faces serious political and economic challenges."
"The oldest traces of human activities in the Guianas have been found in savannas, particularly in the savannas in the southern part of the country (Fig. S-1). There is reason to believe that ca. 10,000 years ago, in a relatively dry climatic period, a more or less uninterrupted savanna belt ran from the coastal area of West Venezuela to the south of Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana."
