Resumen

OTS, María José. STUDY OF DISTURBANCEINDUCED BY TILLAGE ON CERAMIC ASSEMBLAGES MAGUA AMARGA (TUPUNGATO, MENDOZA, ARGENTINA). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2008, vol.40, n.2, pp.145-160. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562008000200003.

The purpose of this work is to identify the effects of mechanical tillage on the archaeological site Agua Amarga located in Valle de Uco (Mendoza, Argentina). In order to evaluate disturbances in the spatial distribution and representability of ceramics assemblages, we compared samples obtained by systematic and intensive surface collection with those from controlled test excavations. The working methodology included mapping of ceramics distribution, statistical analysis of point distribution, artifact identification by technical-typological analysis of ceramics, and representability analysis of these artifacts on the surface by statistical tests. Finally taking into account the kind and frequency ofthe agricultural activities, we discuss the results of the study in relation to phenomena like size effect and occupational disturbance. We demonstrate that the ceramic assemblage studied, composed of three characteristic wares or type series of West-Central Argentina, is representative of site occupations, concluding that some aspects (such as chronological and technological factors) can be resolved even in surface collections from sites disturbed by plowing.

Palabras clave : Plow-zone archaeology; surface archaeology; pottery.
