Resumen

GORDILLO, Sandra  y  ASCHERO, Carlos. Between the yungas and the sea: circulation of mollusks in early hunter-gatherers of the Puna, austral extreme of the central Andes. Estud. atacam. [online]. 2020, n.66, pp.301-318. ISSN 0718-1043.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22199/issn.0718-1043-2020-0049.

In this work, archaeomalacological material recovered from the Inca Cueva-4 site, located in the homonymous stream in the extreme northwest of Argentina, is described. The set is made up of 26 elements, which make up four different types, and which were interpreted as personal ornaments. It stands out a perforated element that coincides with Polinices uber, a marine species from the Pacific. The presence of Megalobulimus spp., probably originating from the Yungas region, about 200 km away, where it currently resides, is also confirmed. Based on the context considered, it is concluded that towards the end of the Pleistocene and the early Holocene the circulation of luxury goods existed in an area of ​​1000 km that extends between the Pacific Ocean, the Puna and the Yungas region.

Palabras clave : Puna; early hunter-gatherers; circulation; marine and terrestrial mollusks.
