Communities in Contact represents the outcome of the fourth international Leiden in the Caribbean congress entitled From Prehistory to Ethnography in the circum-Caribbean. The contributions included in this volume cover a wide range of topics from a variety of disciplines – archaeology, bioarchaeology, ethnohistory, and ethnography – revolving around the themes of mobility and exchange, culture contact, and settlement and community. The application of innovative approaches and the multi-dimensional character of these essays has provided exiting new perspectives on the indigenous communities of the circum-Caribbean and Amazonian region throughout prehistory until the present.
