Resumen

CORNEJO B, Luis E  y  GALARCE C, Patricio. C INDEX: DIMENSIONING THE EXPEDIENT/CURATIVE CONTINUUM IN LITHIC TECHNOLOGY. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2010, vol.42, n.2, pp.393-404. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562010000200004.

The technological emphasis in lithic assemblages can be examined in terms of the degree of planning each set represents and its corresponding position along the expedient/curative continuum. This approach has been a very useful analytical tool in studies of toolmaking technologies, especially among hunter-gatherer societies. In most cases, however, the approach uses qualitative criteria which, though valid, do not allow for comprehensive comparisons of different contexts. This work proposes a mechanism that is more quantitative than qualitative by offering an Índex that can measure the degree of curation of a given lithic assemblage. As the paper shows, we have found this development to be a useful tool for analyzing hunter-gatherer and horticulturist contexts of Central Chile.

Palabras clave : Technological organization; lithic curation and expediency; Central Chile.
