Description - Archaeology in Latin America by Benjamin Alberti
This comprehensive survey provides an overview of themes in Latin American archaeology written solely by academics native to the region. They cover significant issues, such as the domestication of camelids, the emergence of urban society in Mesoamerica, the frontier of the Inca empire, and the relatively little-known archaeology of the Amazon basin. It draws together key areas of research in Latin American archaeological thought into a coherent whole, and some of the countries examined have rarely been covered in the past.
