Notes

Abstract: I began working as an ethnoarchaeologist in Yarsuit, also known as Kuna Yala, or Commarca de San Blas in 1995. I was interested in studying how a population living in a tropical, maritime environment formed middens with their refuse. I wanted to know what they considered refuse, when it became refuse, and how the people disposed of it. This information would be used to offer insights for valid interpretation of midden samples from the coastal peninsulas along the Georgia, Florida, and Alabama coastline in the Southeastern United States.
