Resumen

COSTA-JUNQUEIRA, Maria Antonietta. MODALIDADES DE ENTERRAMIENTOS HUMANOS ARCAICOS EN EL NORTE DE CHILE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2001, vol.33, n.1, pp.55-62. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562001000100009.

This article presents the burial methods of three human groups belonging to the Huentelauquén Culture, a culture which developed in the arid lands of northern Chile, in an attempt to establish possible mortuary patterns of these peoples. The burials belong to the archaeological sites of La Chimba 13 (Region II), La Fundición and Huentelauquén (Region IV) which are chronologically situated between 9700 and 8100 years B.P. A common trait is the face up body position, with the inferior extremities turned to the left and the hands turned towards the face. Some of the particularities include: primary burial of isolated individuals, primary burial of collective tomb, secondary burial and charred bone fragments

Palabras clave : Mortuary Practices; Bioarchaeology; Ideology.
