Contingency in the Environments of Foraging Societies

(p.184) 11 Epilogue
The Archaeology and Historical Ecology of Small Scale Economies

William Balée

University Press of Florida

This summary takes a retrospective view of the preceding substantive and analytical chapters. These chapters bespeak new and significant findings relevant to the research program of historical ecology. They treat specifically the biotic and historical consequences of the interactions between foragers and landscapes and between foragers and seascapes. Most of the book deals with archaeological time periods, but evidence from the more recent past in an ethnohistorical context is also presented. Deep time is rendered accessible in this volume thanks to advances in archaeological methods and procedures, as well as an increasingly sophisticated—and nuanced—view of the environment and the activities of foraging societies within it.

Keywords:   historical ecology, landscapes, seascapes, foragers
