Foundations of archaeological inquiry


This volume addresses captivity as a subject for anthropological, primarily archaeological, investigation. Presented by Cameron (U. of Colorado), the volume's 12 chapters discuss such topics as the archaeology of African slavery; captivity, slavery, and cultural exchange between Rome and the Germans from the First to the Seventh Century CE; the impact of captured women on cultural transmission in contact-period Philippine salve-raiding chiefdoms; slavery, household production, and demography on the southern northwest coast of North America; skeletal evidence for captivity and slavery from the La Plata Valley, New Mexico, 1100-1300 CE; the role and status of nonlocal women on the protohistoric high plains of southern North America; captivity to kinship in Amazonia; and captivity as social death among the indigenous peoples of the western Great Lakes of North America.
