Resumen

LYNCH, Virginia  y  HERMO, Darío. FROM PRODUCTION TO USE: BLADE TECHNOLOGY AT CUEVA MARIPE SITE (SANTA CRUZ, ARGENTINA). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2017, vol.49, n.2, pp.193-208.  Epub 24-Mar-2017. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562017005000010.

Blade technology has been recovered at several archaeological sites in Patagonia, mainly in Middle and Late-Holocene contexts. Many authors define this technology as ways of raw materials exploitation with the purpose of optlmlzatlon. However, blade production and use often involves other decislons beyond the availablllty of raw materials in a particular area. At the Cueva Maripe site (Santa Cruz Province, Argentina), artefacts corresponding to the entire operative chain of blade production were recovered. The main objective of this paper is to analyse the evidence of these different stages in the blade production process, from core preparation until its use and discard, during the Mid-Holocene occupation at Cueva Maripe site. Since rocks of good quality for carving are abundant in the Deseado Massif of Santa Cruz, blade production at Cueva Maripe site would not have been directed towards the maximization of raw materials. The results of the techno-morphological and functional analysis of this technology at the site support the view that blade manufacture would have been related to a particular production mode, with designs oriented to a diverse range of uses on soft and hard materials such as hide, wood and bone.
