Don Lathrap as a Wordle

I thought it would be fun to put some articles by different scholars in the form of "wordles" or word clouds. I used the generator over at, which is very handy. This one is from Don Lathrap's article about occupation and oxbow lakes: Aboriginal occupation and changes in river channel on the Central Ucayali, Peru. It's from American Antiquity and was published in 1968. The link to the wordle page is down at the bottom of the post. It's kind of fun to use this gadget to see what kinds of words come out in your own writing; maybe it will be revealing to compare different authors.
