The Xingu Ethnoarchaeological Project

The Xingu Ethnoarchaeological project began in the early 1990's under the direction of Dr. Michael Heckenberger now at the University of Florida.  The project, now in it's second decade, continues to combine  archaeology and ethnography to describe 2000 years of indigenous history in the southern Amazon.  Below is an overview map of the project area.  You can explore selected archaeological sites by clicking the links at the top of the map.  Further links to excavation illustrations and photographs of the sites can be found within those pages.
