CASES, BÁRBARA et al. SUGGESTIONS FROM A FUNERARY CONTEXT IN AN "EMPTY SPACE" OF THE ATACAMA DESERT. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.1, pp.51-70. ISSN 0718-6894.

A case study is presented of a funerary context situated in the pampas near the current Maria Elena Nitrate Mine offices, in Northern Chile. A multidisciplinary analysis, which includes bioanthropological, textile and zooarchaeological research, and studies of nearby routes and their associated AMS dates, provides new interpretations and understandings of former assumptions regarding regional traffic.

Keywords : Northern Chile; bioanthropology; textiles; zooarchaeology; vial; axis; interzonal traffic.
