  2. 2. ADVANCES IN BRAZILIAN ARCHEOLOGY, 1935-1985Betty J. MeggersAlthough Brazil occupies almost half the continent of South America, its archeology attractedlittle interest until recently from either nationals or foreigners. This is attributable to the charac-teristics of the remains. There are no buildings of stone, tools and ornaments of metal, or elaborateartifacts of cloth, wood, and bone. Except along the Amazon, pottery is not noted for its aestheticqualities; even there, complete vessels with well preserved decoration are scarce. Shell middensalong the southern coast are spectacular in size but deficient in cultural content. Other sites arepredominantly shallow middens containing fragments of pottery, or flakes and minimally shapedtools of stone. Specialized techniques and skills are necessary for extracting cultural and chronologicalmeaning from such evidence and their introduction about 1965 revolutionized Brazilian archeology.An overview of progress during the past 50 years is provided by tabulating the annual totals ofpublications listed in two general bibliographies. The Handbook of Latin American Studies, initiatedby the Hispanic Division of the Library of Congress in 1935, provides annotated lists of books andarticles. Coverage is restricted by two factors: (1) unavailability of many publications and (2)limitations on space. Tabulating works by Brazilian authors by year of publication shows annualproductivity of five titles or less prior to 1955 (Figure 1). Between 1956 and 1966, output duringmost years varied between five and eight. In 1967, there was a pronounced surge. Forty-three titlesare listed for 1969 and 35 for 1971. Although there have been several large fluctuations, productivityhas generally remained high to the present.Tabulating titles by foreign and domestic (Brazilian) authors in the farmore complete bibliographypublished by Prous (1982) shows the same pattern. Prior to 1950, 10 or fewer titles are listed peryear. Between 1950 and 1956, 10 to 20 are reported during most years. In 1966, there was a rapidexpansion that peaked at 69 titles in 1969 and has usually exceeded 40 in subsequent years.These patterns provide a basis for recognizing three general periods in the history of Brazilianarcheology during the past half century. Period 1, between 1935 and 1955, continues earlier isolatedand predominantly amateur activities. Period 2, between 1955 and 1965, is characterized by severallong-term programs of research and training that introduced scientific methods of excavation,analysis, and interpretation. Period 3, from 1965 to the present, reflects the adoption and widespreadapplication of these methods throughout Brazil.PERIOD 1: 1935-1955Prior to 1950, archeological activities did not differ significantly from those of earlier decades.The foci of interest were also the same. The sambaquis (shell middens) continued to attract attentionfrom geologists and paleontologists, as well as those interested in their cultural significance. TheArgentine archeologist, Antonio Serrano, is credited with "modifying completely the conception ofarcheological problems in southern Brasil" as a consequence of visiting sites and collections in RioGrande do Sul, Parana, Santa Catarina, and Sao Paulo during 1937 (Brochado 1969:16). In RioGrande do Sul, he recognized five archeological regions, each characterized by a different type ofculture. He also placed local developments within a larger context by proposing relationships withthe Andean region. With specific reference to the sambaquis, he differentiated two kinds: (1) anBettyJ.

V. Walter, British Vice-Consul in Belo Horizonte, began excavating cavesand rock shelters during the early 1930s in search of early human occupancy. The results of his first15 years of investigations were published in 1948. A second volume appeared in 1958. Among hislong-term collaborators was Anibal Mattos, who published one of the firstgeneral books on Brazilianprehistory in 1938. He was preceded by Joao Angyone Costa, whose Introduqdo d arqueologiabrasileira appeared in 1934 and was revised in 1938.Prior to 1948, Amazonian archeology was the subject of works based on pottery in museumsfrom the Santarem region (Palmatary 1939) and Maraj6 (Meggers 1947). George Howard made avaliant effort to distill patterns and relationships in his analysis of Prehistoric Ceramic Styles ofLowland South America (1947). Other comparisons of more limited scope by Rouse (1940), Meggers(1947, 1948), and Palmatary (1939) served mainly to underscore the need for better contextual andchronological data before any reliable reconstructions could be made. Hence, when confronted withthe problem of selecting topics for our doctoral dissertations, Clifford Evans and I chose the mouthof the Amazon for fieldwork.We arrived in Rio de Janeiro in July 1948 after a three-day trip from Miami in a DC-3. HeloisaAlberto Torres, the Director of the Museu Nacional, was one of the few Brazilian scholars who hadbeen to Maraj6. She authorized us to work under the auspices of the museum, thus fulfilling thelegal requirements. We proceeded to Belem, where we found the famous Museu Goeldi in pitifulcondition. Its decline had commenced with the collapse of the rubber boom and by 1948 it wasbarely surviving. Nevertheless, we were welcomed by the director, Machado Coelho, who offeredus an empty house on the grounds that served as our residence and laboratory during the rainyseason. While negotiating with landowners, we had several conversations with Frederico Barata, ajournalist interested in archeology in general and the Santarem region in particular. His subsequentpublications remain among the few worthwhile sources on the pottery from that region (Barata1950, 1951, 1953a, 1953b, 1954).After securing the necessary permissions from landowners, we boarded a wood-burning steamerthat took us to Chaves on the north coast of Maraj6. During the following three months, we traveledby horseback, oxback, dugout, sailboat, and foot; we hung our hammocks in all kinds of shelters,moving on the average every three days; we ate agouti, paca, cayman, lizard and cayman eggs, lotsof fish and farinha (a derivative of bitter manioc); we accustomed ourselves to doing half a days

We returned to Bel&mjust before Christmas with alarge amount of fragmentary pottery from numerous sites on the north coast of Marajo, and onMexiana and Caviana, none of which resembled the ceramics hitherto termed "marajoara."Consequently, after the rainy season began to taper off in May, we spent another month surveyingand testing artificial mounds in the center of Maraj6 accompanied by Peter Paul Hilbert, a youngGerman ethnologist who had arrived in Bel&mduring our previous fieldwork. One of the excavationsproduced a large anthropomorphic vessel with well preserved painted decoration (Figure 2), whichhas been on exhibit at the Museu Goeldi ever since and become a symbol of the Marajoara culture.In 1975, it appeared on a postage stamp (Figure 3) and more recently it has been reproduced onT-shirts and tote-bags sold to tourists-something we could never have imagined in 1949.After our departure, Hilbert continued the work on Maraj6and conducted investigations in Amapaand along the middle Amazon under the auspices of the Instituto de Antropologia e Etnologia doPara, founded by Barataand other local amateurs in 1947. Conditions at the Museu Goeldi continuedto deteriorate, but total collapse was averted by its transfer in 1954 from administration by theState of Para to a subsidiary of the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas na Amaz6nia (INPA) head-quartered in Manaos. Our monograph presenting the results of the investigations at the mouth ofthe Amazon appeared the same year (Meggers and Evans 1954).PERIOD 2: 1955-1965During this decade, Brazilian archeology was transformed from an amateur pastime to a profes-sional activity. A great deal of the credit belongs to Jose Loureiro Fernandes, Director of the Centrode Ensino e Pesquisas Arqueol6gicas of the Universidade do Parana (Figure 4). Beginning in 1955,

After Emperaires accidental death in 1957, Laming continued. Brazilianstudents participated in the fieldwork and analysis and many of those most prominent today weretrained by her. During 1958-1959, Wesley Hurt was a Fuibright Professor at the Universidade doParanaand did fieldwork, again with participation by Brazilians. From July to September 1962,Laming conducted a formal course in field and laboratory methods focusing on sambaquis. Thiswas followed in October 1964 by a workshop on the analysis of fragmentary pottery and theconstruction of relative chronologies, directed by Meggers and Evans. This experience gave us first-hand appreciation of the amount of ingenuity, tenacity, and drive expended by Fernandes to organizeand fund these programs, and of the significance of his efforts. Students from many states wereexposed to the same field and analytic methods, whose subsequent application has given Brazilianarcheology a unity unknown elsewhere in Latin America. Equally importantly, they became ac-quainted personally. The participants of the ceramic workshop in 1964 developed a special senseof camaraderie during the month they lived and worked together in the Museu de Arqueologia eArtes Populares in Paranagud, which has been vital to the success of programs that developed fromthis event.During this decade, other centers emerged or were revived. The Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldiresumed its leadership in Amazonian archeology in 1955, when Peter Hilbert joined the staff. Thefirst paper in the Anthropology series of the Boletim was authored by him (Hilbert 1957). When
  6. 6. 368 AMERICANANTIQUITY [Vol. 50, No. 2, 1985Figure 4. Jose Loureiro Fernandes (left) in 1964.Hilbert returned to Germany in 1961, his place was taken by M6rio F. Sim6es, who reorganizedthe storage, put the records in order, and began conducting fieldwork. In Rio Grande do Sul, PedroI. Schmitz began working on ceramic sites under the auspices of the Instituto Anchietano de Pes-quisas, a Jesuit institution that had previously concentrated on botany, zoology, and history. Thefirst publication in the Anthropology series of Pesquisas appeared in 1957 and by 1962, 14 numbershad been published. Valentin Calderon, who was trained in archeology in Spain, joined the facultyof the Universidade Federal da Bahia and began an inventory of sites in that state. Walter F. Piazzawas assembling a similar record in Santa Catarina. Jodo Alfredo Rohr, Director of a Jesuit highschool in Florian6polis, began excavating cemeteries on the Isla de Santa Catarina and publishinghis results in Pesquisas.Other research programs were initiated without the support of academic institutions. In RioGrande do Sul, Eurico Th. Miller began recording and surface collecting sites surrounding his hometown of Taquara. In 1961, he excavated a rock shelter and established the first typology for stoneprojectile points dating between about 6000 and 4000 B.P. (Miller 1969). In Rio de Janeiro, OndemarF. Dias adopted another course. In 1961, he founded the Instituto de Arqueologia Brasileira (JAB)as a mechanism for bringing together local people interested in archeology. From the beginning,there were two categories of members: (1) those permitted to take part in fieldwork, and (2) thoseallowed to attend lectures and other activities conducted in the IAB headquarters. This structurepermitted increasing professionalization of the JAB in subsequent years.PERIOD 3: 1965-1985The opportunity to build on the foundation laid during the preceding decade came in 1965, whenthe Smithsonian Institution and the Conselho Nacional de Pesquisas signed a five-year agreement

Jose Emperaire and Paul Rivet (left) at a large sambaqui on the coast of Sao Paulo being excavatedin conduct the Programa Nacional de Pesquisas Arqueol6gicas (PRONAPA), implementing a plandeveloped during the ceramic workshop at the Universidade do Parani. The immensity of thecoastal region requiring investigation-extending from the mouth of the Amazon to the Uruguayanborder-and the paucity of funds and personnel made it necessary to maximize results. The researchdesign proceeded from the assumption that the shore and the major rivers served as primary routesof movement of people and ideas. In the states with resident archeologists, sectors along these routeswere designated for intensive survey. Each state was divided into areas for purposes of standardizednumbering of sites. All sites, extending from preceramic to neobrazilian (post-European), wererecorded, mapped, surface collected, and where possible tested stratigraphically. The pottery wasclassified using uniform criteria and described using uniform terminology (Chmyz 1976). Meetingswere held at the end of the first, third, and fifth years, at which each archeologist presented detailsof the data (Figure 6). Because multi-year funding could not be obtained, the participants had todo the fieldwork, analyze the materials, and prepare publishable reports each season as a basis forrequesting continuing support, in addition to teaching and performing other duties for the Brazilianinstitutions that paid their salaries.These years were exhausting but exhilarating for us as well as for the 11 Brazilian archeologistswho did the work. More than 1,500 sites were investigated in Para, Rio Grande do Norte, Bahia,Sao Paulo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, Guanabara, Parana, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande doSul. The ceramic sites were grouped into phases and traditions; dozens of seriated sequences providedrelative chronologies, and some 150 carbon-14 dates permitted their alignment. When the finalmeeting of the PRONAPA was held in Washington in 1973, a general time-space framework hadbeen established for the Coastal Strip, which permitted preliminary interpretations about the courseand process of cultural development from initial settlement to the eighteenth century (PRONAPA1967, 1969a, 1969b, 1971, 1974; Sim6es 1972).Simultaneously, an intensive program using similar methods was initiated in Rio Grande do Sul

In 1967, the first of several symposiabringing together archeologists from Santa Catarina, Parand, and Rio Grande do Sul, and fromUruguay and Argentina, was held at the Instituto Anchietano de Pesquisas. In the same year, theMuseu Arqueol6gico do Rio Grande do Sul was established in Taquara, supported by the state ofRio Grande do Sul. About the same time, archeologists were added to the faculties of the Univer-sidade Federal do Espinto Santo and the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais.During the early 1970s, two important programs involving French and Brazilian collaborationwere directed toward rock shelters. Fieldwork in the Lagoa Santa region was organized by Lamingand carried out in 1971 and 1973 (Laming-Emperaire et al. 1975). A long-term study emphasizingpictographs and their contexts has been underway in the northeastern state of Piaui since 1973,directed by Ni&de Guidon (1975), under the sponsorship of the CNRS (France) and the MuseuPaulista (Brazil).The Instituto de Arqueologia Brasileira enhanced its scientific activities in 1974 with the creationof a Centro de Pesquisas Arqueol6gicas housed in a restored colonial residence in the suburbs ofRio de Janeiro, provided by the State. By 1984, its staff had grown to 14 professional investigators,8 students, and 3 consultants. The first two volumes of a monograph series were published the sameyear, and the Boletim was revived after a lapse of more than a decade. Long-term research programsunderway include intensive excavation of sites of theItaipPr Tradition along the coast of Rio deJaneiro, which have produced subsistence remains and a large skeletal sample, as well as artifactspermitting reconstruction of a specialized subsistence adaptation during the millennia preceding theChristian Era. Another multi-year program focuses on the Sio Francisco valley in Minas Gerais.
  9. 9. Meggers] BRAZILIANARCHEOLOGY 371Since 1977, the IAB team has also been collaborating with similar teams from the Museu Goeldi,the Universidade Federal do Espirito Santo, and the Secretaria de Cultura, Turismo e Deporte deRond6nia in the Programa Nacional de Pesquisas Arqueol6gicas na Bacia Amaz6nica (PRONA-PABA). Patterned after the PRONAPA and incorporating several of the same investigators, thisprogram has recorded and sampled hundreds of sites in Amazonia, including survey of the entireMadeira and Guapore courses, sections of the Jurua, the upper Purus, the upper Xinguiand Tapajos,the lower and middle Negro, the left margin of the lower Amazon, and parts of Acre and MatoGrosso (Sim6es and Araujo-Costa 1978; Sim6es 1983).Another program of intensive investigation has been underway in southern Goias through thecollaboration of archeologists from the Instituto Anchietano de Pesquisas of Rio Grande do Suland the Universidade Cat6lica de Goias. Several rock shelters have been excavated, attesting to thepresence of humans by 11,000 B.P. At the late end of the sequence, tentative correlations have beenmade between two ceramic traditions and the two major divisions of the Ge family of languages(Schmitz et al. 1982). Major cultural and subsistence differences have been observed, which appearto reflect climatic changes and ecological diversity.Another important development during the past decade is implementation of the federal lawrequiring archeological salvage in regions affected by construction of dams, exploitation of mineraldeposits, and other kinds of activities. The earliest major project was a highly successful survey ofthe Brazilian portion of the reservoir created by the Itaipu dam on the Rio Parani, conducted byIgor Chmyz. Detailed descriptions of the sites and artifacts have been published in seven volumes(Chmyz 1976-1983). Similar projects have been completed, are in progress, or are being plannedthroughout the country.In 1980, Brazilian archeology came of age with the founding of the Sociedade de ArqueologiaBrasileira (SAB). In 1982, it had more than 100 members representing over 20 institutions. Meetingsheld in 1981 in Rio de Janeiro and in 1983 in Belo Horizonte were attended by professionals andstudents from all parts of the country. Unfortunately, facilities for training have not kept pace withgrowing interest and need. Only the Universidade de Sao Paulo offers Masters and Doctors degreesin anthropology; two other institutions (the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco and the PontificiaUniversidade Cat6lica do Rio Grande do Sul) offer Masters degrees in the history of culture, whichincludes prehistory (Schmitz 1983). Amplifying the opportunities for academic training is a majorchallenge, which must be met to provide the personnel necessary to conduct the salvage programsas well as to carry out other investigations to fill the gaps in our knowledge of cultural developmentduring pre-European times. The dedication and perseverance that have characterized the effortsduring the past 50 years make it safe to predict that this obstacle will be overcome and that significantcontributions to archeological method, theory, and data will be made by Brazilian archeologists inthe years to come.REFERENCES CITEDBarata, Frederico1950 A arte oleira dos Tapaj6 (Part I).
