CARABIAS A., DIEGO; LIRA S., NICOLÁS e ADAN A., LEONOR. THOUGHTS ON THE USE OF LOGBOATS IN ANDEAN PRECORDILLERAN LAKE FOREST ENVIRONMENTS, CENTRAL-SOUTH CHILE. Magallania [online]. 2010, vol.38, n.1, pp. 87-108. ISSN 0718-2244. doi: 10.4067/S0718-22442010000100006.
This paper proposes some thoughts on the use of watercraft on interior waters within the precordilleran lake forest environments of central-south Chile. A critical revision of available information related to water transport and indigenous logboats in particular is conducted from an archaeological, ethnohistorical and ethnographical perspective. Theoretical implications regarding watercraft use by continental Archaic and Ceramic period populations according to archaeological and historical proposals are analyzed, and the relative importance and antiquity of these practices in the Araucanian Lake District is discussed.
