A series of major themes, including the first settlement of different parts of the continent, interactions with and adaptations to varied and changing environments, technological choices and patterns of economy and land use will be addressed. Particular case studies will be used to focus on evaluating the available archaeological and ethnohistorical information and the way it has been used to provide insights into past ways of life.
