Addressing using geoinformatics in Caribbean archaeology, this quantity is predicated on case stories drawn from particular island territories, specifically, Barbados, St. John, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Nevis, St. Eustatius, and Trinidad and Tobago, in addition to inter-island interplay and panorama conceptualization within the Caribbean area. Geoinformatics is mainly severe in the Caribbean the place web site destruction is severe as a result of hurricane surges, hurricanes, ocean and riverine erosion, urbanization, industrialization, and agriculture, in addition to advertisement improvement alongside the very waterfronts that have been domestic to many prehistoric peoples. by means of demonstrating that the zone is fertile flooring for the applying of geoinformatics in archaeology, this quantity locations a well-needed scholarly highlight at the Caribbean.Contributors:Douglas V.

Reid Aimed at enhancing cultural resource management of Trinidad’s preColumbian sites, this chapter discusses weights-of-evidence models for three watersheds in the south and southwest of Trinidad. Pre-Columbian sites and their areal association with evidential themes (such as landform, relief, soils, and land capability) formed the basis of these predictive models.

1). This lineal configuration has led to consideration of this landscape as an ideal laboratory for addressing questions about human migration and cultural evolution. Traditionally, migration into the Antilles has been characterized by a stepping-stone model of movement northward through the islands from South America (Rouse 1953, 1992). However, the origins and pace of that movement are still points of contention (Callaghan 1995, 2001, 2003; Curet 2005; Wilson et al. 1998). , at the series level), until social or environmental pressures necessitated their expansion to the next suitable island (see Curet 2005:28–30 for a detailed discussion).
