Abstract

CARRASCO, Carlos et al. RESEARCH IN QUILLAGUA: DIFFUSION OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE AND PROTECTION OF CULTURAL HERITAGE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2003, vol.35, n.2, pp.321-326. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562003000200012.

A synthesis of the experience of two research projects funded by FONDECYT (1950071 and 1990168) is presented. While conducting these projects, the researchers where interested in presenting to the community of Quillagua what archaeological research is all about beyond the scientific audience. This experience continues a line of work -which has been conducted for several years in the Upper Loa region- emphasises to maintain a fluid relationship between archaeologists and local communities. This relationship has led the communities to report cases of looting and destruction of archaeological sites, thus allowing to protect more effectively the cultural heritage of the region.

Keywords : Archaeological research; community; protection of cultural heritage.
