MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe 46th Annual Chacmool Archaeology Conference, “Trading Spaces: The Archaeology of Interaction, Migration, and Exchange” focused on the exchange of goods and ideas between people, contributing to the development of new ideas regarding human interaction in archaeology. The chapter authors in this volume explore the interaction and context of how the movement of people, materials, and ideas influenced human civilizations, and the resulting impact on the archaeological record. The 2013 conference explored these themes in a variety of cultures worldwide.
