PAUNERO, RAFAEL S  and  SKARBUN, FABIANA. Reserva Península de San Julián: Distributional archaeological studies in a particular coastal geomorphology. Magallania [online]. 2011, vol.39, n.1, pp.253-264. ISSN 0718-2244.

We present the results of our studies on distributional archaeology in San Julián Peninsula, considered a particular geomorphology in the coastal landscape, which suggests it was used in a special way by human groups. We aim to know which role played the peninsula in the different strategies of exploitation and the probable special use patterns implemented for the different environments in the region, from the moment the present coast line was established. We surveyed the whole peninsula through a methodological design which consisted on two stages. The distribution and density of lithic artifacts were recorded. They allowed us to define different use intensities according to landscape units, identify sites and recognize possible digging areas. The results make visible on a map the distribution of surface elements related to the use of coastal and interior spaces by human groups.

Keywords : peninsula; distribution; densities; uses; spaces.
