PERALTA G, Santiago; MORENO, J. Eduardo  and  PEREZ R, Hugo. The house is in order: Intrasite spatial analysis of delta vulcana 1 (Lake Musters, Chubut) and mobility of gatherers-hunters in Central Patagonia during the late holocene. Magallania [online]. 2014, vol.42, n.2, pp.141-153. ISSN 0718-2244.

The main purpose of our article is to know how the archaeological register in Delta Arroyo Vulcana 1 (Musters Lake, Chubut) is distributed and with our conclusions help to understand the mobility and settlement of the hunter-gatherers that lived in the region during the Late Holocene. For our work, we design distribution and density maps by using a geographic information system. The results shows that exists an intrasite structure, and support the idea that in that region prevailed resolutions that involved a model of order and maintenance of the internal space. These results provide elements within the discusion of high residential mobility in the Late Holocene.

Keywords : spatial analysis; intra-site; hunter-gatherers; Late Holocene; Musters lake; Chubut.
