1993. 25cm. Pp.vii,52. 11 photos, text figures & maps. Paperback.

Sharks and Shark Products in Prehistoric South Florida is a comprehensive exploration of the economic uses of sharks by Precolumbian natives of south Florida. Laura Kozuch provides a fascinating account of the role of sharks in the culture and economy of south Florida's Native Americans. A zooarchaeologist, Kozuch shows that sharks were regularly hunted by south Florida Indians, for whom they provided meat, shark-liver oil, and teeth for tools and trade. She reviews shark-fishing technology around the world, describes archaeological findings in south Florida, and offers interpretations relevant to the role of sharks in native social and economic systems.
