One of the ultimate goals of this volume is to present a series of testable models, based upon the historic, ethnographic and ecological/ethological data, that can be used to help identify the signs of transhumant pastoral adaptations in the archaeological record. Archaeologists have long recognized the difficulty in establishing the presence and significance of transhumant pastoralism to the study of prehistoric cultural systems. Transhumant pastoralists are the invisible, although frequently inveighed against elements of prehistoric economic and social systems. English and French text.
