CASES, BÁRBARA et al. SUGGESTIONS FROM A FUNERARY CONTEXT IN AN "EMPTY SPACE" OF THE ATACAMA DESERT. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.1, pp. 51-70. ISSN 0718-6894. doi: 10.4067/S0718-68942008000100004.
A case study is presented of a funerary context situated in the pampas near the current Maria Elena Nitrate Mine offices, in Northern Chile. A multidisciplinary analysis, which includes bioanthropological, textile and zooarchaeological research, and studies of nearby routes and their associated AMS dates, provides new interpretations and understandings of former assumptions regarding regional traffic.
