the theoretical groundings for this work, exploring how a focus on landscapes, which Richard argues, are inherently anachronistic, inclusive and unstable, allows him to subvert metanarratives of the Atlantic world. Richard’s landscapes are archives, hybrid assemblages and entangled, making visible

exploitation of the frontier. Core societies, nominally Muslim, were in fact deeply hybrid in religious and cultural terms. The expansion of such societies, however, was highly destructive.

Material Encounters and Indigenous Transformations in the Early Colonial Americas brings together 15 case studies focusing on the early colonial history and archaeology of indigenous cultural persistence and change in the Caribbean and its surrounding mainland(s) after AD 1492. With a special emphasis on material culture and by foregrounding indigenous agency in shaping the diverse outcomes of colonial encounters, this volume offers new perspectives on early modern cultural interactions in the first regions of the ‘New World’ that were impacted by European colonization. The volume contributors specifically investigate how foreign goods were differentially employed, adopted, and valued across time, space, and scale, and what implications such material encounters had for indigenous social, political, and economic structures.

That a Scandinavian container forms part of the treasury of San Isidoro is no accident, as a reading

exceptions to be discussed below, Iberian images of the devil in this period tended to adhere to the monstrous, hybrid type traditional elsewhere in western Europe. 22 Several such figures appear in the Hell scene produced for the Silos Beatus circa 1109 (London, BL, MS Add. 11695, fol. 2r), a work close in
