Quantifying Ancient Wealth Inequalities


This project contains datasets and other resources used in a volume to be published by the University of Arizona Press in 2018 entitled Ten Thousand Years of Inequality: The Archaeology of Wealth Differences, edited by TA Kohler and ME Smith. This volume emanates first from a symposium at the April 2016 Society for American Archaeology meetings entitled Measuring and Explaining Household Inequality in Prehistory: Inequality from the Bottom Up, also organized by Kohler and Smith. That was selected as that year's SAA-Amerind Foundation symposium, convened at their beautiful Dragoon, Arizona campus in September 2016.
