Cultural Development, Language Distribution, and Ecology in Pre-Columbian Amazonia

Eriksen, Love LU (2006)
Abstract
The thesis aims at creating a large-scale GIS database covering Amazonian prehistory

between 2000 BC and AD 1700 in order to be able to test the hypothesis of ethnic

circumscription described above. This database will be compiled of geographically

positioned material from archaeology (datings, ceramic styles, tempering materials, rock

art, anthropogenic soils, and other visual aspects of material culture); historical linguistics

(linguistic distribution maps); ethnography (historical material culture with analogies to

prehistory, trade routes, and the spatial extent of indigenous groups); and geography and

ecology (mapping of soil types, vegetation zones, climate changes, and... (More)
