Sammanfattning

The thesis aims at creating a large-scale GIS database covering Amazonian prehistory
between 2000 BC and AD 1700 in order to be able to test the hypothesis of ethnic
circumscription described above. This database will be compiled of geographically
positioned material from archaeology (datings, ceramic styles, tempering materials, rock
art, anthropogenic soils, and other visual aspects of material culture); historical linguistics
(linguistic distribution maps); ethnography (historical material culture with analogies to
prehistory, trade routes, and the spatial extent of indigenous groups); and geography and
ecology (mapping of soil types, vegetation zones, climate changes, and water flows).
