Zooarchaeology of South America

Guillermo Luis Mengoni Goñalons


Among other important considerations, South America offers scientists an outstanding biodiversity, an excellent preservation in some particular areas and taphonomic challenges in others, a relatively long temporal depth, and a great variety of bio-cultural themes to investigate. This volume presents 12 contributions that takes the reader on a journey through a vast continent; a journey that starts at the Equator and reaches its southern tA. One in which, over great periods of time, humans and other animals have particAated together in a variety of processes and particular histories.
