Taft Research Center Talk

I just returned from visiting the University of Cincinnati where I gave a talk at the Taft Research Center. Many thanks to the UC Dept. of Anthropology for inviting me to share my work. Here is a copy of the paper I presented, which summarizes some of the ideas put forward in my book Amazonia in the Anthropocene.

SAPIENS just published a short excerpt from my book Amazonia in the Anthropocene that looks at the role American Confederate families played in the early archaeology of the Amazon basin. You can read it here.
