19th International Conference on Ethnomedicine and Traditional Medicine 14th-15th May, Amsterdam

March, April and May have been the most dynamic months for the project, starting with the visit to the Archivos Históricos Arzobispales in Lima early March, followed by the Society for American Archaeology Meetings in Vancouver early April. By the beginning of May, I had arrived back in York in the United Kingdom to make a fleeting visit to the Department of Archaeology, Kings Manor, before flying over to Amsterdam to present a paper at 19th International Conference on Ethnomedicine and Traditional Medicine: “Ethnic Andean Concepts of Health and Illness in the post Colombian world and its relevance today” which I presented on behalf of my co-author Fernando Ortega and I.


By mid May I arrived in Seville ready to carry out the final phase of ethnohistorical research at the world renowned Archivo General de Indias, originally built in 1572 by King Philip II of Spain and in 1785 converted into the storehouse of all the archives of the Council of the Indies relating to the administration of the Spanish overseas empire.
