Hi. I am not sure, but I can see one thing in the photos that might be a clue - the Cowry shells.Read More I know that since ancient times Cowry shells have been used in magic and rituals. They have even been used as money as well, so that thing may be some sort of alter or ritual device. Or perhaps a marker of for a death or accident, just like when a Christian puts in a cross in the side of the road where a loved one has died, etc. So you guys may have unwittingly have disturbed some sort of meaningful site. It certainly looks from the photos like something of somewhat complicated design.
