From 1995 to 2010, the archaeology of the Central Amazon has been continuously studied in a long-term effort involving Brazilian and foreign researchers: the Central Amazon Project. This conference brings some of the results obtained by the mapping and excavation of a number sites located adjunct to the confluence of the Negro and Solimoes (Amazon) rivers showing that this area has been occupied with different levels of intensity along the millennia. As a conclusion, it will be proposed that other vertical, historical-based efforts are needed if one wants to grasp the whole variety of forms of human occupation in the Amazonian past.
