Archaeological fieldwork in Chiriquí (1936)

DOCUMENT [ID: 4554] Sigvald Linné.

This is a 1936 article talks about the number of artifacts that are housed in American (US) museums and the overwhelming number that are in private collection. One of the arguments is that the archaeological exploration of the area has little to do with learning about culture and had more (if not entirely) to do with the gold in the area. Evidence of that can be seen in the name that the area became known as "Castilla del Oro." The unfortunate thing is that literature, especially academic...

The Archaeology of Highland Chiriqui, Panama -- Documents, Images, and Datasets

PROJECT [ID: 4243] Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

Archaeology is defined by its grounding in material objects; without contextual elements of space and place, however, material culture is devoid of much of its meaning and archaeological information. This article focuses upon pre-Columbian objects – including gold, ceramics, and stone artefacts - from a small, localized area of the Chiriquí region of western Panamá in the context of the volcanic landscape. The discussion is intended as a provocative introduction to the archaeology of highland...
