Abstract

LEMA, Verónica S. FROM OBJECT TO CONTEXT: THE "E" LAYER(S) OF HUACHICHOCANA III. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2017, vol.49, n.2, pp.209-226.  Epub May 02, 2017. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562017005000015.

The aim of this paper is to update our knowledge of the occupations at Huachichocana cave III (Jujuy, Argentina) during the time span ranging from the beginning of the Early Holocene to the Formative. The analysed remains correspond to studies carried out in the Huachichocana locality during the 1970s. From the study of the archaeological collection and of the associated bibliography, an attempt was made to go beyond the prevailing layer-object description present in the bibliography consulted, assessing the possibility of detecting associations which point out areas of multiple or specific activities, allowing us to characterize the past occupations of this cave, and also to re-evaluate thefunerary contexts. Also, the reassignment ofnew chronologies to some materials was considered in this reconstruction, as well as the possibility that some elements originally informed as belonging to a certain level/layer/period belonged to another. New radiocarbon dates and specific analyses are also informed.

Keywords : Huachichocana; Argentinian North West; Early Holocene; Formative.
