Abstract

LABARCA E, Rafael et al. CHAETOPHRACTUS VELLEROSUS GRAY 1985 (XENATHRA, DASYPODIDAE) EN UN CEMENTERIO DE TÚMULOS DE LA DESEMBOCADURA DEL RÍO LOA (REGIÓN DE ANTOFAGASTA, CHILE): EVIDENCIAS DE CONEXIONES CON EL ALTIPLANO ANDINO DURANTE EL PERÍODO FORMATIVO TARDÍO (500 AC - 800 DC). Estud. atacam. [online]. 2015, n.50, pp.47-58. ISSN 0718-1043.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-10432015000100003.

In this paper, we present a detailed description of armadillo osteoderms recovered in the Caleta Huelén 20 cemetery (Late Formative), located at the mouth of Loa river. Based on studies of morphological and metric attributes of the carapace mobile bands, the materials are assigned to Chaetophractus vellerosus. Its presence at the site, beyond its present day distribution, must be understood within an extensive network of exchange and mobility that connected the coastal area and the Andean Puna, which intensified during the Formative period.

Keywords : Dasipodidae; armadillo; funerary context; Formative period; exchange networks; mobility.
