Abstract

QUEVEDO KAWASAKI, Silvia. PATRONES DE ACTIVIDAD A TRAVÉS DE LAS PATOLOGÍAS EN POBLACIÓN ARCAICA DE PUNTA TEATINOS, NORTE SEMIÁRIDO CHILENO. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2000, vol.32, n.1, pp.11-21. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562000000100004.

The activities carried out each day leave their mark on the bones, in such a way that if we accept this premise, it is possible to relate certain types of paleopathology with the activities of population. This work focuses on a human group that practiced an economy based on marine hunting, fishing and the gathering of mollusks and plants. The excellent preservation of these remains permitted us to determine sex and age with accuracy and to analyze pathologies. We studied inflammation, anomalies and anatomical variants. It was concluded that a significant correlation between patterns of pathology and patterns of activity exist

Keywords : Paleopathology; prehistoric activity-induced patholology.
