GONZALEZ, Erwin et al. Social palaeontology: an educative experience about sciences, patrimony and identity. Calidad en la educación [online]. 2011, n.34, pp.231-245. ISSN 0718-4565.

This paper aims to present an educational experience with children and young people in Southern Chile. They learned about heritage using the scientific method as a vehicle of knowledge and appreciation. Our work is based on researches on paleontological and archaeological findings in Pilauco and Monte Verde. We have oriented both experiences to the so-called Social Palaeontology, understood as integrated to the archaeology of early settlers and based on concepts of heritage and identity.

Keywords : palaeontology; archaeology; education; heritage; identity.
