Abstract

REYES, OMAR et al. THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE NORTHERN CHANNELS: NEW RESULTS FROM THE SENO GALA 1 SITE (~44° S, REGIÓN DE AISÉN, CHILE). Magallania [online]. 2007, vol.35, n.2, pp.105-119. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442007000200008.

Results of surface and stratigraphic surveys and artifact collections conducted at the northern coast of Jacaf channel, Región de Aisén (Chile), are herein presented. Out of these activities, Seno Gala 1 site outstands as the main archaeological locality. We expose settlement characteristics, the chronological context, recorded lithic technology (operative chain represented and behavioral inferences) and faunal remains. We intend to contribute to the comprehension of human dispersion issue in the northern channels of Patagonia and the continental coast of Aisén. Finally, we discuss results in relation to regional research and correlations, issues related to the "maritime hunter-gatherer" way of life, the future agenda and the search for material indicators of space superposition, proximity without contact or interaction of these groups with terrestrial ones, documented near Cisnes' river outlet (Puyuhuapi channel, -44° S)

Keywords : Maritime hunter gatherers; northern channels; Patagonia; late Holocene.
