When Europeans arrived on the American continent 500 years ago, they found people bearing the modern phase of what archaeologists have called the ‘archaic culture’. This type of culture spread from the north to the south during the climatic changes that occurred around 8000 bce. The strength of this particular type of culture lay in a total utilization of natural resources. Agriculture made its first real impact around the beginning of this era, but even then the variegated use of natural resources did not cease, and we still find hunting and foraging together with agriculture throughout the Americas.
