Resumen

MEDINA, Matías; BUC, Natacha  y  PASTOR, Sebastián. INTENSIFICATION AND OCCUPATIONAL DYNAMIC DURING THE LATE PREHISPANIC PERIOD IN THE SIERRAS OF CÓRDOBA (ARGENTINA): A BONE TECHNOLOGY APPROACH. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2014, vol.46, n.1, pp.73-90. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562014000100005.

This paper presents the results of an analysis of the bone technology from four Sierras de Córdoba (Argentina) Late Prehispanic archaeological sites (ca. 1,100-360 BP). The aims of the study were to classify the bone tools into morphological groups and to determine the activities carried out at those sites. The results indicate bone technology was made with locally available materials and linked to the needs of small household groups. They also suggest that the adoption of small-scale agricultural strategies, ca. 1,100 BP, was accompanied by the intensification of hunting-gathering activities, which included the development of new technologies for hunting and processing their products. Finally, we conclude that the open-air residential sites exhibited a greater diversity of bone tools and concrete evidence of their manufacturing, which reflects a wider range of activities and a complex long-term occupational/abandonment history.

Palabras clave : Sierras de Córdoba; Final Late Holocene; intensification; residential mobility; bone technology.
