HYBRID - Landscapes of Predation: Exploring Hostile Social Environments in Small-Scale Societies presented by Dr. Catherine Cameron (CU Boulder, Anthropology)

December 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

AIA Society: Boulder

Ancient social environments are difficult to reconstruct, and archaeologists have a much poorer grasp of how the social environment affects where and how people live. One sort of social behavior that is often visible archaeologically is violence: raiding and warfare. Using ethnohistoric cases, I identify “landscapes of predation” created by intense social violence. I will describe the archaeological signatures that violence produces and illustrate the utility of this concept with examples from the American Southwest and Southeast.
