Ancient Raised Field Agriculture: Applied Archaeology in the Bolivian Amazon
Until about 30 years ago, Western academic opinion agreed that the Amazon Basin could never have sustained large populations; due to the limitations of a tropical environment, the area could support only hunting and gathering and slash-and-burn agriculture. Subsequent archaeological research proved this opinion wrong.   A joint "applied archaeology" project involving the Inter-American Foundation, the Parroquia of San Ignacio, the Bolivian Institute of Archaeology, and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology has developed an experimental program to put raised-field agriculture back into use.
