An Islandscape IFD: Using the Ideal Free Distribution to Predict Pre-Columbian Settlements from Grenada to St. Vincent, Eastern Caribbean

ABSTRACT This study employs an ideal free distribution (IFD) model to conduct a fine-grained analysis of environmental factors affecting the pre-Columbian colonisation sequence and settlement

Lapidary production in the eastern Caribbean: a typo-technological and microwear study of ornaments from the site of Pearls, Grenada

The lack of robust chronological frameworks for pre-Columbian archaeology in the Caribbean limits the interpretive potential of ongoing studies of inter-site and inter-island interaction. This paper

Pre-Columbian Settlement Trajectories in Eastern Dominica: Report on Initial Radiocarbon Age Estimates

ABSTRACT Radiocarbon age estimates from a micro-regional survey of Eastern Dominica provide a chronological framework for Ceramic Age (ca. 400 BC to AD 1492) settlements and population movements in

The dating of the Island Southeast Asian Neolithic: an attempt at chronometric hygiene and linguistic correlation

As with conventional definitions of the Neolithic anywhere, the concept in this region relies on there being an agricultural economy, the traces of which are largely indirect. These traces are

The Early Ronquin Paleosol and the Orinocan Ceramic Sequence

ABSTRACT In their 1958 monograph, Cruxent and Rouse suggested that the lower levels of the Ronquin site could be subdivided into more than one period, possibly a developmental change from Saladeroto
