ArchaeoCafé Podcast – Episode 15 – Histories of the Amazon: An interview with Anne Rapp Py-Daniel and Myrtle Pearl Shock

hosted by Otis Crandell

In this episode I talk with Anne Rapp Py-Daniel and Myrtle Pearl Shock about the importance of local history, particularly the long period of pre-European history in Brazil, and their initiative “Arqueologia nas Escolas: Histórias da Amazônia” which is introducing local histories and hands-on learning to the public school curriculum in Pará state, in the northeast of Brazil.
