Resumen

PAEZ, María Cecilia  y  PLA, Rita. LOCAL POTTERY PRODUCTION POTTERY DURING LATE AND INCA PERIODS IN THE TAFÍ VALLEY (TUCUMÁN, ARGENTINA). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2015, vol.47, n.3, pp.429-440.  Epub 30-Ago-2015. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562015005000037.

A central issue in analyzing the dynamics of pre-Hispanic societies is their ability to produce the goods they consume, in this case, the pottery they used in their daily activities be they domestic or symbolic/ritual nature. One of the first stages of a program of archaeology study focused on such issues u involves identifying potential clay sources, a primary resource in ceramic manufacturing, and its compositional affinity with archaeological fragments. In this paper we present the results of a Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) conducted on 54 samples from the Tafi Valley in northwestern Argentina. Of these, 50 are archaeological fragments assigned to the Late and Inca Periods within the local regional chronology, while four are clay samples from across the valley. The multi-elemental affinity of sample compositions supports an interpretation of local pottery manufacturing, although the conclusions are tempered by the small sample in this initial study.

Palabras clave : Neutron Activation Analysis; pottery production; Late and Inca Periods.
