Summary

There is good archaeological evidence that the Amazon basin was densely populated during the 2,000 years prior to the beginning of European colonization and that these populations promoted important landscape transformations. However, not much is known about patterns of landscape transformation during the Middle Holocene. This paper brings such data based on ongoing research on two archaeological sites in Southwestern Amazonia: Monte Castelo, a fluvial shellmound and Teotonio, an open air deeply stratified site.
