Mortuary Practices and Ritual Associations: Shamanic Elements in Prehistoric Funerary Contexts in South America
Ten papers plus an introduction, some of which are taken from a symposium held at the SAA in Chicago in 1999, on the recognition of shamanic traditions within funerary contexts in South America and how to address the diversity within the shamanic elements represented. This is not the place to find an in-depth discussion of the definition of shamanism, but it is where you will find a number of case studies.
