Abstract | Full Text

On almost two millions of square kilometers, Guyana forms a geografical and cultural identity. But, if we can talk about the specificity of a precolombian amerindian world, each period and each region has known particular developments. Five principal steps have been identified during the Guyanase prehistory which starts 10000 years ago to end with the european conquest 500 years ago.
