Seeking a Richer Harvest Summary

Seeking a Richer Harvest: The Archaeology of Subsistence Intensification, Innovation, and Change by Tina Thurston

Subsistence intensification, innovation and change have long figured prominently in explanations for the development of social complexity among foragers and horticulturalists. This set of global case studies re-examines the 'subsistence question' in light of recent research. It contrasts traditional approaches with recent archaeological research that presents human driven strategies for power, prestige, and status as causes of subsistence intensification.
