The volume contributes to disrupt the old grand narrative of cultural contact and colonialism in Spanish and Portuguese America in a wide and complete sense. This edited volume aims at exploring contact archaeology in the modern era. Archaeology has been exploring the interaction of peoples and cultures from early times, but only in the last few decades have cultural contact and material world been recognized as crucial elements to understanding colonialism and the emergence of modernity. Modern colonialism studies pose questions in need of broader answers. This volume explores these answers in Spanish and Portuguese America, comprising present-day Latin America and formerly Spanish territories now part of the United States. The volume addresses studies of the particular features of Spanish-Portuguese colonialism, as well as the specificities of Iberian colonization, including hybridism, religious novelties, medieval and modern social features, all mixed in a variety of ways unique and so different from other areas, particularly the Anglo-Saxon colonial thrust. Cultural contact studies offer a particularly in-depth picture of the uniqueness of Latin America in terms of its cultural mixture. This volume particularly highlights local histories, revealing novelty, diversity, and creativity in the conformation of the new colonial realities, as well as presenting Latin America as a multicultural arena, with astonishing heterogeneity in thoughts, experiences, practices, and, material worlds.

Despite the effects of epidemics of highly contagious old world crowd diseases, the native populations living on the Paraguay and Chiquitos missions survived and retained a unique ethnic identity. A comparative approach shows how demographic patterns on the Paraguay and Chiquitos missions differed from other Spanish frontier missions.

Rebelión contra La Guipuzcoana se desarrolla dentro del marco de La Real Compañía Guipuzcoana de Caracas que durante el siglo XVIII detentó el monopolio del comercio con Venezuela y que fue protagonista de importantes procesos históricos como, por ejemplo, el progreso social y económico de la Provincia, hecho que la alentó hacia la independencia, y el enriquecimiento tanto de las arcas reales como de las de Gipuzkoa y Euskal Herria, lo que provocó reacciones adversas que culminaron en una de las primeras rebeliones campesinas de América. Sobre ese convulso fondo histórico de la Venezuela del siglo XVIII surge una historia de amor, se expone un conflicto social y político, dos rebeliones libertarias, se presenta un lenguaje coloquial criollo y se describe una geografía tropical exuberante, además de la de Euskal Herria, y el modo en que un grupo de vascos competentes hace prosperar una de las compañías más florecientes de las que se tiene noticia en el pasado colonial. "...Como la Compañía, sistemáticamente, no empleaba en sus almacenes y barcos sino oriundos de Vizcaya, éstos afluyeron a todos los lugares donde tuvo establecimiento. Así, pues, no es de extrañarse que la mayoría de los europeos residentes en Puerto Cabello, Venezuela, se componga de vizcaínos, quienes se distinguen tanto por su actividad y honradez, como por su lenguaje singular...", retrata el viajero francés Francisco Depons en su libro Viaje a la parte oriental de la Tierra Firme, 1801-1804.

None of the world’s “lost writings” have proven more perplexing than the mysterious script in which the Inka Empire kept its records. Ancient Andean peoples encoded knowledge in knotted cords of cotton or wool called khipus. In The Cord Keepers, the distinguished anthropologist Frank Salomon breaks new ground with a close ethnography of one Andean village where villagers, surprisingly, have conserved a set of these enigmatic cords to the present day. The “quipocamayos,” as the villagers call them, form a sacred patrimony. Keying his reading to the internal life of the ancient kin groups that own the khipus, Salomon suggests that the multicolored cords, with their knots and lavishly woven ornaments, did not mimic speech as most systems of writing do, but instead were anchored in nonverbal codes. The Cord Keepers makes a compelling argument for a close intrinsic link between rituals and visual-sign systems. It indicates that, while Andean graphic representation may differ radically from familiar ideas of writing, it may not lie beyond the reach of scholarly interpretation. In 1994, Salomon witnessed the use of khipus as civic regalia on the heights of Tupicocha, in Peru’s central Huarochirí region. By observing the rich ritual surrounding them, studying the village’s written records from past centuries, and analyzing the khipus themselves, Salomon opens a fresh chapter in the quest for khipu decipherment. He draws on a decade’s field research, early colonial records, and radiocarbon and fiber analysis. Challenging the prevailing idea that the use of khipus ended under early Spanish colonial rule, Salomon reveals that these beautiful objects served, apparently as late as the early twentieth century, to document households’ contribution to their kin groups and these kin groups’ contribution to their village. The Cord Keepers is a major contribution to Andean history and, more broadly, to understandings of writing and literacy.
