Description

This volume reports on the excavation of Guilá Naquitz cave in Oaxaca, a site that provides important evidence for the earliest plant domestication in the New World. Stratigraphic studies, examinations of artifactual and botanical remains, simulations, and an imaginative reconstruction make this a model project of processual archaeology.

Reviews

"The whole is impressive." -Don E. Dumond, American Anthropologist

"Not only does it give important data on the Archaic of Oaxaca, a key region of Mesoamerica, but also it adds new techniques and methods of analysis that result in a new approach to theory." -Richard S. MacNeish, American Antiquity
