Other scholars, including University of Illinois archeologist Anna Roosevelt, great granddaughter of Theodore, are at work in the Mato Grosso. Roosevelt believes the area has been settled for about 11,000 years, and geologists "have uncovered so much black earth from ancient settlements that they now believe the Amazon may have sustained millions of people. Donald Lathap believes that the Amazon may have been the "wellspring of high civilization throughout the Americas."

Many of these ongoing excavations follow the work of Anna C. Roosevelt. In the 1980s on Marajo Island, at the mouth of the Amazon, she turned up house foundations, elaborate pottery and evidence of an agriculture so advanced she believes the society there possibly had well over 100,000 inhabitants.

Roosevelt, a professor of anthropology at the University of Illinois, said that was because the civilizations encountered by Europeans quickly disintegrated, victims of disease.
But until their demise, she said, their cultures were anything but primitive. "They have magnitude, they have complexity," she said. "They are amazing."
