In the Heart of the Amazon

April 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Eduardo Neves, the renowned Brazilian archaeologist and a leading researcher in Amazonian ancient studies, unearths stories of the rain forest’s past and of the civilizations that have called it home. During 15 years of work, Neves and his team have discovered vast orchards of semi-domesticated fruit trees and huge swaths of terra preta, so-called Indian dark earth that is land made fertile by mixing charcoal, human waste, and other organic matter with soil. Engage in this collaborative and community-based conversation as Neves shares his groundbreaking research, which argues that the Amazon has a much deeper and far more complex history than ever imagined.
