Description

In 1946 and 1953, Irving "Ben" Rouse led archaeological excavations at prehistoric to protohistoric sites on the island of Trinidad. This book presents an analysis of these excavations--until now unpublished--relating the results of Rouse's work to subsequent research at these sites by other investigators and to current knowledge of Trinidad's cultural sequence and Amerindian ethnohistory. The first detailed study of indigenous cultural development in Trinidad covering its entire pre-Columbian through the historical Amerindian sequence, this work is a significant addition to the data on Caribbean archaeology.
