Abstract

TRONCOSO, Andrés et al. SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL TRENDS IN HUMAN PREHISPANIC OCCUPATION IN THE LIMARÍ RIVER BASIN (30° S). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2016, vol.48, n.2, pp.199-224.  Epub Apr 15, 2016. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562016005000016.

This paper discusses the pre-Hispanic sequence of historical development in the semiarid north of Chile through the study of spatial and temporal dynamics of human occupation in the Limari valley. Based on the study of settlements, museum collections and rock art, a sequence of transformations and development between the Early Archaic and Inca Period is observed that differs from what is traditionally known of the area. In this timeframe, social changes such as the adoption ofpottery and the constitution of an agrarian way of life, occur at different paces in both time and space within the same Limari valley. We discuss spatial and representational characteristics of rock art in relation to pre-hispanic social processes, emphasizing the links between audiences, flows of information and the dynamics of social life.

Keywords : Semiarid North; Limarí valley; historic sequence; settlement pattern; rock art.
