Estudio Comparativo de la Produccion y Uso de Artefactos Liticos en el Macizo del Deseado (Santa Cruz Argentina)

Details

This work includes the study of use traces of lithic technologies manufactured by different hunter-gatherer societies from the Central Plateau of Santa Cruz (Argentina). The time period studied is from the Pleistocene-Holocene transition to the Late Holocene (ca. 13,000 years AP C14 to historical times). Techno-morphological studies, microwear analysis and experimental archaeology were applied to lithic materials of the Cueva Maripe and Piedra Museo sites. Similarities in the design and use of lithics during the different periods of occupation of the study sites were identified. This allowed us to determine the economic and symbolic aspects of the technological practices, and to formulate assumptions about the importance of the context of use of lithic technologies in the social organization of the groups that inhabited at the Central Plateau of Santa Cruz (Patagonia, Argentina).
