The Saladoid

Abstract : Pre-Columbian sites with similar artifacts were excavated at an early date in Trinidad (Howard 1943) and the West Indies (Rouse 1940), but the classification of these sites as reflecting a common culture area was not achieved until Cruxent and Rouse (1958/1959) defined the Saladoid "series" (i.e., related "peoples and cultures") following research in the Orinoco River valley of Venezuela. This name became widely adopted following the first international convention for the study of the pre-Columbian cultures of the Lesser Antilles in 1961, and it quickly replaced the appellation "Arawak" to designate the first Antillean ceramic groups. The Saladoid series culture area includes the Orinoco River basin, parts of the north coast of South America, and the Lesser Antilles and Puerto Rico. This chapter present the state of art about Saladoid series.
