Abstract

CARACOTCHE, MARÍA SOLEDAD et al. ARCHAEOLOGICAL RECOVERY IN MONTE LEÓN NATIONAL PARK (SANTA CRUZ, ARGENTINA). Magallania [online]. 2005, vol.33, n.2, pp.143-163. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442005000200010.

The Monte León Archaeological Rescue Project resulted from the creation of Monte León National Park (Santa Cruz, Argentina) as a way to mitigate the impact caused by a variety of natural and anthropic processes. The artefact, zooarchaeological, and chronological information developed has offered new evidence for the discussion of past human use of space in the southern Atlantic coast. Noteworthy among these are the use of different marine resources and locally-available rocks. Not withstanding, finds of various types of obsidian place Monte León within a broader circuit of interaction. Human occupations would have taken place successively since the Mid Holocene, showing a marked increase during the late component (the last 2000 years BP).

Keywords : Middle and Late Holocene; Atlantic coast; archaeological rescue; hunter-gatherers.
