Abstract

SANTORO, Calogero M. et al. FROM THE PACIFIC TO THE TROPICAL FORESTS: NETWORKS OF SOCIAL INTERACTION IN THE ATACAMA DESERT, LATE IN THE PLEISTOCENE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2019, vol.51, n.1, pp.5-25. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562019005000602.

Different lines of archaeological evidence including open camps, workshop-quarries, lithic artifacts, archaeofaunal remains, plant and animal fibers and textiles, archaeobotanical remains, and paleoecological data show that people of the PdT managed a wide range of cultural items from the Pacific coast, the Andean highland and the tropical forest, that were integrated with resources gathered locally within the socio-cultural systems established by the end of the Pleistocene. These results are interpreted as material expressions of multi-scalar networking for resource management and other social material and immaterial requirements, which in other words, means that these people were actively connected to regional (coastal and highland), and supra-regional (trans-Andean) exchange networks from and out of the PdT.

Keywords : Local; regional and pan-Andean networks of interaction; Atacama Desert; Pacific coast; Andes; tropical forest.
