Hunter-Gatherer Archaeology as Historical Process seeks to show how hunter-gatherer societies were more complex than simple remnants of a prehistoric past. Combining the latest empirical studies of archaeological practice with the latest conceptual tools of anthropological and historical theory, this volume will be of great interest to anyone involved with the study of foraging peoples.
This book examines how communities from three aboriginal nations in what is now southwestern On-tario negotiated the changes that accompanied the arrival of Europeans and maintained a cultural continuity with their pasts that has been too often overlooked in conventional "master narrative" histories of contact.
