Abstract

REINHARD, Johan. A HIGH ALTITUDE ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEY IN NORTHERN CHILE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2002, vol.34, n.1, pp.85-99. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562002000100005.

This paper presents the results of an investigation of ten mountains undertaken in 1983 in Lauca and Isluga National Parks in northern Chile. Archaeological sites were surveyed on five of the summits and ethnographic information was collected in villages located near them. An Inca figurine, made out of mullu shell (spondylus) was discovered on the surface at one of the sites. The survey helps extend our knowledge of the distribution and types of archaeological sites in northern Chile

Keywords : Inca; Lauca; Isluga; Parinacota; mountain worship; spondylus.
