Introducing the Communicating Communities researchers within the Caribbean Research Group
Unraveling networks of human mobility and exchange of goods and ideas from a pre-colonial, pan-Caribbean perspective.
This new NWO research (VICI) will start in June 2008.
The pre-colonial Caribbean (is)landscape, with its discontinuous distribution of resources, the maritime orientation of its native (Amerindian) inhabitants and region-wide interaction patterns, had a dynamic, inter-connected character.
A combined approach involving archaeological, bioarchaeological and archaeometric data of burial assemblages representative both in time and space is imperative to map the network of human mobility and to detect the multi-scalar phenomena at play across different socio-political settings.
Provenance and distribution of raw materials.
The circum-Caribbean Amerindian world revolved around the circulation of goods and ideas, from the distribution of raw materials, preforms and finished products to the spread of ideas and social valuables by means of exchange and gifting.
