These seventeen papers result from a symposium held by the Society for American Archaeology at Leiden University in 2002 which marked the advances made in Caribbean archaeology over the preceeding decade. The contributions focus on evidence from the entire eastern Caribbean for the Late Ceramic or `post-Saladoid' period, c.AD 600/800-1500. The specialist papers, each introduced with English and French summaries, are divided into five sections: Space, time and culture; Social, political and ideological dynamics; Inter-insular contact networks; Cultural Landscapes; Looking south. The book concludes with a synthesis and a full bibliography. All of the papers are in English except for two that are in French.
