Guangala Fishers and Farmers: A Case Study of Animal Use at El AzĂșcar, Southwestern Ecuador
Pescadores y agricultores guangala: Un estudio de caso de uso animal en El AzĂșcar, suroeste de Ecuador.


by Elizabeth J. Reitz and Maria A. Masucci

Zooarchaeological remains are the focus of this study of subsistence, settlement, economics, and politics on the Ecuadorean coastal plain. Surprisingly intensive exploitation of marine resources for both food and the production of ornamental items is documented, in the case of sites immediately adjacent to the coastline as well as farther inland. Deer and other animals were hunted, and the relative importance of agricultural production varied through time and across the region. Complete text in English and Spanish.
