About the Author

Daniel A. Contreras is an archaeologist focused on human-environment interactions in the past, particularly anthropogenic and geomorphic components of dynamic landscapes and environmental change. He pursues these interests in contexts ranging from complex polities in Andean South America and Mesoamerica to early Neolithic societies experimenting with domestication and village life in Southwest Asia. He is currently a LabEx OT-Med postdoctoral researcher in the Institut Mediterraneen de Biodiversite et d'Ecologie (IMBE) and Groupement de recherche en economie quantitative d'Aix-Marseille (GREQAM) at Aix-Marseille Universite.
