2013). Numerous useful weeds also preceded the arrival of migrants. One was the castor bean (Ricinus communis), known to colonial Europeans as the Hand of Christ. A readily identifiable shrub both cultivated and spontaneous, this plant has been known and used medicinally since ancient times as a purgative and to eliminate lice (Carney 2013).

What we find and have in hand are institutions (sites of memory), and in these, we find “things” or testimonies—books, documents, and objects.

Many paleoethnobiologists rely on large natural history collections at universities and museums. Similarly, the archaeological chemist relies on large databases that record molecular structures of known examples of compounds that derive from plant and animal tissues, whether these are fatty acids, proteins (Fig. 2), or other types of residues. A constant challenge in Paleoethnobiology 29 laboratory analysis is the degree to which molecular structure or tissue morphology is conserved in terms of evolutionary biology (homology) across similar species.
