Paddling Through the Past- A Landscape Archaeological Survey of a Contested Waterway (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew R Beaupre.

During the 17th and 18th centuries, the Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Corridor was a ‘border-zone’, highly contested between the Native and European powers of the Atlantic world.  In the summer of 2012, a team of archaeologists, educators and artists undertook a canoe-based landscape archaeological survey of the region.  The team investigated colonial period forts and Native sites with the goal of discerning whether the placement of sites within the landscape was purely strategic, or whether...

Political Economy, Praxis, and Aesthetics: The Institutions of Slavery and Hacienda at the Jesuit Vineyards of Nasca, Peru (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brendan J. M. Weaver.

Their haciendas and annex properties throughout the Nasca valleys established agroindustrial hegemony in the region. This paper explores the political and economic dynamics among enslaved subjects...


Slavery and the Jesuit Hacienda System of Nasca, Peru, 1619-1767 (2019)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Brendan J. M. Weaver.

This is an abstract from the "Jesuit Missions, Plantations, and Industries" session, at the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Multi-scalar archaeological exploration offers new insights for understanding Jesuit estate systems and the slavery they depended on for agroindustrial production. Since 2009, I have conducted ethnohistorical and archaeological research on two Jesuit haciendas, San Joseph and San Francisco Xavier de la Nasca, in south coastal Peru’s Ingenio...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Ian Burrow. William Liebeknecht.
