GARAY DE FUMAGALLI, Mercedes  and  CREMONTE, María Beatriz. EARLY AGROPASTORAL OCCUPATIONS IN THE SOUTH OF THE QUEBRADA OF HUAMAHUACA (JUJUY, ARGENTINA). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2002, vol.34, n.1, pp.35-52. ISSN 0717-7356.

New evidence regarding about Formative settlements located between Volcán and Jujuy Valley is presented. This zone includes the southern section of the Quebrada de Humahuaca (Prepuna) and the western yungas (Bosque Montano and its transition to the Monte Chaqueño). The agropastoralist occupations defined in this article have archaeological records that differentiate them from contemporaneous sites found in the Quebrada de Humahuaca. The early occupation located below the Pukara of Volcán (Desarrollos Regionales and Inka periods), Trigo Pampa, Lozano and San Pablo de Reyes sites, show some variations in their settlement locations and ceramic contexts. Some hypotheses regarding these site traits in relation to the San Francisco Tradition are discussed
