附註 "This book represents the culmination of over twenty years of person research into whether historical archaeology, as a study of post-1500 history, can contribute to broad-scale analyses having global significance. The most salient inquiries of this archaeology are: can historical archaeology add to what scholars know about the development of our modern, Western world and beyond? And if so, how might this be accomplished? This book sets out to address these questions and to provide one path toward making historical archaeology relevant as a field engaged in examining the development of the today's world."--Preface

"On February 25, 1577, the first vestiges of daylight began to streak across the eastern horizon off the tiny island of Chapera, one of two hundred islets making up the Pearl Island archipelago in Panama Bay. As he rose and scanned the ocean as part of his morning ritual, 40-year old Diego de Sotomayor noticed an unfamiliar speck bobbing in the growing daylight. Observing the object as it grew closer, Sotomayor realized that one of his worse fears may have come true. Approaching in a small, open boat was a company of strangers. Sotomayor knew he could not protect his family--his wife, their children, and his wife's parents--if the visitors were English."-- Provided by publisher
