Wetland Archaeology and Beyond

Francesco Menotti

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the various ways people interacted with the wetlands, and in particular how and when they decided to settle within them, from sporadic seasonal camps in the Early Holocene to well-structured permanent settlements more recently. It deals mainly with settlement sites, their geographical location, chronology, and patterns of occupation in relation to their contextual cultural and environmental transformations. The analysis is divided into six main geographical areas: Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania, North America, and Central and South America, which themselves have further divisions based on the relevance of wetland archaeological sites in each specific region.

Keywords:   wetland archaeology, settlements, seasonal camps, Early Holocene, wetland archaeological sites
