For more than 12,000 years, South American cultures ranged from mobile hunters and gatherers to rulers and residents of colossal cities. In the process, native South American societies made advancements in agriculture and economic systems and created great works of art-in pottery, textiles, precious metals and stone-that still awe the modern eye. Organized in broad chronological periods, A Prehistory of South America explores these diverse human achievements, emphasizing the many adaptations of peoples from a continent-wide perspective. Moore examines the archaeologies of societies across South America, from the arid deserts of the Pacific coast and the frigid Andean highlands to the humid lowlands of the Amazon Basin and the fjords of Patagonia and beyond. Illustrated in full color, accessible to undergraduate and beginning graduate students, and suitable for an educated general reader interested in the Precolumbian peoples of South America, A Prehistory of South America is a long-overdue addition to the literature"--  |c Provided by publisher.
