Abstract

REYES B, OMAR; MENDEZ M, CÉSAR; TREJO V, VALENTINA  and  VELASQUEZ M, HÉCTOR. EL CHUECO 1: A MULTICOMPONENT SETTLEMENT OF THE CENTRAL WESTERN PATAGONIAN STEPPE (11.400 TO 2.700 CAL. YEARS BP, -44° S). Magallania [online]. 2007, vol.35, n.1, pp.107-119. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442007000100007.

This paper presents the results of research conducted at a rock shelter in the steppe area of the Chilean region of Aisén. Occupations spanning a period between 11.400 to 2.700 calendar years BP have been identified at the site, making it an ideal context to understand the time scale of human presence, both in terms of the chronology of initial settlement and as regards the recurrent use of space during the Holocene. Our paper summarises the methods employed, describes the characteristics and formation processes of the site, presents an overview of the chronology of human occupations, and emphasizes associated artefact assemblages, mainly lithic tools. We conclude by discussing our results in the light of knowledge of human occupations of the Cisnes river basin and the broader region of Central Patagonia

Keywords : Hunter gatherers; Central Patagonia, multi-component site; Pleistocene-Holocene transition.
