Las sociedades prehispánicas del Alto Magdalena

by Robert D. Drennan

A comprehensive reconstruction of the social, political, and economic organization of the prehispanic chiefdoms of the Alto Magdalena in the Colombian Andes. With careful attention to methodology, the reconstruction works back and forth across a wide range of scales from the individual household, to the community, to the region and beyong. Emphasis is on the regional and community-scale analyses of the Proyecto Arqueológico Valle de la Plata and the Programa de Arqueología Regional en el Alto Magdalena. The long-famous sculpture and elaborate tombs of the region are placed in social context. In Spanish.
