    American archaeology today encompasses a huge range of approaches and draws eclectically on a multitude of academic disciplines. Until now, however, there has been no book seeking to separate the main strands and traditions of research and present a rounded picture of American archaeological thought in all its diversity. Exploring Gender Diversity in the Ancient World Edited by Allison Surtees and Jennifer Dyer. Published by Edinburgh University Press. Provides a focus on gender on its own terms and outside the context of sex and sexuality.

      “In its broad topical and geographical scope, this volume demonstrates the many ways scholars can productively study ancient ceramics and the diversity of questions their studies can address.”—Christopher A. Pool, coeditor of The Oxford Handbook of Mesoamerican Archaeology. The following articles are merged in Scholar. Their combined citations are counted only for the first article.

This work builds upon several field. In this chapter, ceramic data from selected sites is used to examine the central issue of culture change in the post-Lapita period of Fiji. The EPF ceramic assemblages are described in Chapter 11 (see also Clark a). The interpretation of Lapita ceramics in Fiji, including the possibility of an early division between west Fiji and east Fiji, has.

The main point of this new book is to show that Darwinian evolutionary theory and methods are essential and productive tools for the analy­ sis of human culture. This is a theme that BoydCited by: 5.

Once found only at the margins of the discipline, evolutionary theory has become commonplace in archaeological inquiry. Not surprisingly, evolutionary approaches to understanding past behavior from culture material have undergone an adaptive radiation, filling niches defined by different research questions and data.

Two professors in Hawaii have recreated a range of ancient perfumes including the scent worn by the legendary Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, which are all on exhibition in a National Geographic exhibit.

Evidence of perfume production has been found in Syria dating back 7, years and hieroglyphics tell us that Ancient Egyptians began manufacturing perfume around 3, BC as a. Culture history of Fiji and West Polynesia: for the last 20 years I have been conducting archaeological field work in western Fiji and Sāmoa.

Fabric description is fundamental to the characterization, technological analysis and provenance determination of archaeological ceramics.

Evolutionary Anthropology and Archaeology in the Pacific Project This is a catch-all project for my research on the evolutionary and ecological processes that explain human cultural variation over.

Evolutionary Archaeology is based on the notion that claims culture exhibits key Darwinian evolutionary properties. Therefore, on this basis, EA should follow the same, methods, and approaches that are used to study biological evolution and by doing so it.

For more than a century, the study of hunting and gathering societies has been central to the development of both archaeology and anthropology as academic disciplines, and has also generated widespread public interest and debate.

This transdisciplinary work brings together specialists from various fields who rarely interact, including geneticists, evolutionists, physicians, ethologists.

Darwin's Legacy: Scenarios in Human Evolution is an accurate, thorough, and beautifully written account of human evolution. (Henry M.

Parker and Jaffe's Cited by: 7. Ancestral DNA, Human Origins, and Migrations describes the genesis of humans in Africa and the subsequent story of how our species migrated to every corner of the globe.

Different phases of this journey are presented in an integrative format with information from a number of disciplines, including population genetics, evolution, anthropology. The occurrence of typical Fijian ceramic decorations in post-Lapita deposits of the Mamanuca and Malolo Islands indicates some degree of continued interaction and transmission within a Fiji-wide population.

Finally, the high proportion of defensive sites suggests common processes leading to similar competitive strategies found throughout Fiji. Without adequate knowledge of the ceramic materials, that is, knowledge that permits correct identification, analytical results obviously will be seriously flawed.

This is not an infrequent occurrence in historical archaeology, and it has hampered otherwise well-thought-out studies of time-and-space systematics, studies of formation processes.

Ceramics are a very important type of archaeological evidence at sites, with the potential to inform us about chronology and society.
