Enduring Conquests: Rethinking the Archaeology of Resistance to Spanish Colonialism in the Americas, 2011. 344 pp., 49 figures, 7 maps, 6 tables, notes, references, index, 6 x 9. Paper, ISBN 978-1-934691-41-0, $34.95 Advanced Seminar Series

Edited by Matthew Liebmann and Melissa S. Murphy

Enduring Conquests presents new interpretations of Native American experiences under Spanish colonialism and challenges the reader to reexamine long-standing assumptions about the Spanish conquests of the Americas. The contributors to this volumereject the grand narrative that views this era as a clash of civilizations—a narrative produced centuries after the fact—to construct more comprehensive and complex social histories of Native American life after 1492 by employing the perspective ofarchaeology and focusing explicitly on the native side of the colonial equation.

Contributors: Robin A. Beck Jr., Kira Blaisdell-Sloan, Thomas H. Charlton, Minette C. Church, Guillermo Cock, Kathleen Deagan, Jennifer L. Dornan, Patricia Fournier, Elena Goycochea, Rosemary A. Joyce, Matthew Liebmann, David G. Moore, Melissa S.Murphy, Robert W. Preucel, Jeffrey Quilter, Christopher B. Rodning, Russell N. Sheptak, Barbara L. Voss, Steven A. Wernke, Jason Yaeger

“In Enduring Conquests, Matt Liebmann and Melissa Murphy assemble a sparkling, first-string lineup of scholars who take us far beyond the bloody battlefields and the documentary accounts of the Spanish conquests of the Americas. The contributorsexplore the patchwork of material culture consequences, harnessing a host of innovative archaeological techniques and theoretical perspectives to lay bare the stark and sometimes grisly realities of native resistance and pushback by colonists fromafar.”
