Abstract

BORIE, César; CASTRO, Victoria; VARELA, Varinia  and  ALDUNATE, Carlos. COBIJA AND IT'S CONECTIONS WITH ATACAMA'S HINTERLAND: FROM COLONIAL TIMES TO THE NITRATES WAR. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.209-223. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000100021.

Contrating the image of desolation and hostility implanted on the Atacama's Intermedíate Depression through the concept of wilderness, the altitudinal transect linking Calama and Cobija stands in the light of historical and archaeological research as a scenario in which different human groups deployed over time various strategies of dwelling and travelling, communicating the coastal desert, the Middle Loa basin and the inner oasis of the Antofagasta Region. Integrating strategies for data gathering and analysis methodologies, including the study of historical chronicles and maps, archaeological surveys and the use of geographic information technologies, highway landscapes shaped by the movement of people and goods through this internodal space in historical times are addressed, relieving information regarding their realization in concrete transit routes and the socioeconomic, environmental and technological factors that marked their emergence, use, res-tructuring and neglect.

Keywords : Cobija; historical roads; cultural landscapes; GIS.
