Applying a broad approach, the Cultivated Wilderness Project aims at investigating the long-term dynamics of socio-political organization, resource exploitation strategies, subsistence economies and exchange networks in pre-Columbian Amazonia integrating approaches from the human, social and natural sciences. The preliminary results of our project challenge established views and models concerning pre-Columbian settlement patterns and location. Simultaneously, however, these new dates substantiates early historical information about hinterland settlements and presence of elements such as water reservoirs.
