Overview

The Spanish Missions of La Florida / Edition 1

"A major compendium of the latest effort of a truly blue-ribbon group of scholars. . . .  The volume is certain to be a classic among scholars of archaeology, history, and geography, not only in Florida and the Southeast, but among the large numbers involved in Spanish colonial research elsewhere."--Robert L. Hoover, California Polytechnic State University

"Continues brilliantly the pattern of excellence established by . . . pioneer mission scholars, [with] much to appeal to the specialist as well as the layman. . . . a good deal of simple, direct, and very interesting writing."--Fred Lamar Pearson, Jr., Valdosta State College

This multidisciplinary volume brings together the latest findings of most of the scholars working in southeastern mission studies today, including much information never before published or narrowly circulated.  Aimed at a broad audience, it reports the direct results of field research on mission sites.  The authors are grappling with the effects of missionization through archaeology, history, bioarchaeology, zooarchaeology, and ethnobotany in order to understand both native and Spanish colonial inhabitants.

With a college degree in Anthropology/Archaeology, I found this book interesting and full of detail. I was hoping to find a book with a more historical approach, but instead the book provided detailed accounts of archaeological surveys and excavations. The book was divided into chapters of essays written by different archaeological specialists, ie. zooarchaeology, architectural archaeology, botanoarchaeology. This book would be great for anybody conducting research in the archaeology of Florida, as it provides many detailed accounts in which the researcher can use as referrences. As far as an historical account, I would suggest you search for another book.
