LEGOUPIL, DOMINIQUE et al. Subsistence strategies of hunter gatherers from Dawsson Island (Magellan's Strait) During the second half of the Holocene: first aproximations. Magallania [online]. 2011, vol.39, n.2, pp. 153-164. ISSN 0718-2244.

The development of an archaeological survey on the coast of Dawson and Wickham island, located in a strategic position between different path roads that connect the central portion of the Magellan strait with the fueguian archipelago, allowed detecting 27 sites that correspond to former marine hunter-gatherer camps of the inhabitants of the zone. The accomplishment of excavations in six of these sites allowed recovering an interesting set of archaeological fauna remains. From the analysis of these assemblages, we describe the main observed characteristics and offer a first panorama referred to the subsistence of the groups that lived in this zone of the fueguian archipelago.

Palabras clave : Dawson island; Magellan strait; Late Holocene; marine hunters; fishing; subsistence.
