economic geographic principles to archaeological data (Trigger 1989). ...
Regional survey is the primary vehicle for obtaining a portrait of regional
settlement patterns (Fish 1999).

which the often generalized demographic observations in the historical sources
discussed in previous chapters are applicable, since archaeological evidence is
sensitive to regional variability. But the interpretation of survey evidence is not
without challenges. To establish a chronology of the remains, survey
archaeology depends largely on ceramic material, which tends to be fragmentary

DEMOGRAPHY. In a regional sector bounded by the modern towns of Laguna,
Tubarão, and Jaguaruna, early reconnaissance by Rohr (1984) and more recent
systematic inventory have outlined a settlement system encompassing 420 km2,
over 60 sambaquis, and 96 radiocarbon dates between 4500 and 1500 BP (
DeBlasis et al. 2004; Eastoe et al. 2002; Fish et al. 2000) (Figure 18.2). An

The origins of agriculture became one of the principal theatres of engagement of
the New Archaeology. The Tehuacán, Jarmo, and Deh Luran projects were
typical in their integration of survey with excavation, of settlement archaeology

agriculture' (Fig.
