CHARACTERIZATION OF GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF SETTLEMENTS OF PRE-COLUMBIAN PERIOD BETWEEN, IN LOW AREAS OF AZAPA VALLEY AND THE VALLEY CAPLINA. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.386-396.

Abstract: An analysis of the geographical conditions of the spaces occupied by pre-Hispanic settlements during the Middle period for downstream areas Azapa Valley, Arica (Chile) and mean Caplina Valley, Tacna (Peru) is presented. The paper analyzes different territorial characteristics (spatial distribution, slope, elevation, area of occupancy, proximity, drainage and usability May floor) associated with settlement patterns presented in both valleys. The results show the similarities and differences observed between the two geographical areas, highlighting the increased complexity of the system of occupation presented in the Azapa Valley and the predominance of settlements located in areas with low slopes. Similarly, evidenced a strong presence of archaeological sites on areas surrounding the drainage network and a spatial link to soils with good skills for the development of agriculture in both valleys.
