Thus, this study helps place constraints on the geographical extent of ancient Amazonian populations, says Mike Heckenberger, an archaeologist at the University of Florida who was not involved in the study.

"Recent research suggests there were substantial human populations in some areas of Amazonia. But this paper gives us pause not to extrapolate that pattern too far, as a significant part of the western half of Amazonia may have been sparsely populated," he says. Very little is known about this region's ecological and archaeological past, he says, and this study shows that researchers can't assume that what humans were doing in one place was also happening across broader areas.

This is an extremely novel find - a one of a kind type of thing," said Michael Heckenberger of the University of Florida's Department of Anthropology.

He said that while carbon dating and further excavation must be carried out, the find adds to a growing body of thought among archaeologists that prehistory in the Amazon region was more varied than had been believed.
"The traditional image is that some time thousands of years ago small groups of tropical forest horticulturists arrived in the area and they never changed - (that) what we see today is just like it was 3,000 years ago," Heckenberger said.
