              Tracing Early Agriculture in the Highlands of New Guinea: Plot, Mound and Ditch
               

              Tracing Early Agriculture in the Highlands of New Guinea: Plot, Mound and Ditch (Hardback)

              By Denham, Tim

              In this book, historical narratives chart how people created forms of agriculture in the highlands and how these practices were transformed through time. The intention is twofold: to clearly establish New Guinea as a region of early agricultural development and plant domesticatio...n; and, to develop a contingent, practice-based interpretation of early agriculture that has broader application to other regions of the world. The multi-disciplinary record from the highlands has the potential to challenge and change long held assumptions regarding early agriculture globally, which are usually based on domestication. Early agriculture in the highlands is charted by an exposition of the practices of plant exploitation and cultivation. Practices are ontologically prior because they ultimately produce the phenotypic and genotypic changes in plant species characterised as domestication, as well as the social and environmental transformations associated with agriculture. They are also methodologically prior because they emplace plants in specific historico-geographic contexts. This book is aimed at a new audience, one that is not necessarily familiar with the geographical and historical nuances of the island of New Guinea. It has relevance to archaeologists studying the transitions from foraging to farming, as well as to researchers and students across of range of disciplines (including agronomists, anthropologists, geneticists, geographers and linguists) working in the Indo-Pacific region.
