Resumen

SAEZ, ARTURO. IMPACT OF HISPANIC-INDIGENOUS CONTACT ON HEALTH OF CHILOE POPULATION: A TUBERCULOSIS CASE ON PUQUELDÓN 1 CEMETERY. Magallania [online]. 2008, vol.36, n.2, pp.167-174. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442008000200012.

The results from paleopathological analysis on human remains excavated from Puqueldón 1 site (Lemuy Island, Los Lagos Región) are herein presented. The bones were discovered in a múltiple burial dig, excavated on the shell mound located at this área. The human remains belong to a minimal number of 22 individuáis, from which four are adults ones, two are young of 18 to 20 years oíd, five are children of 10 to 12 years oíd, and seven are unweaned babies. Archaeological and bioanthropological evidence are consistent with a posthispanic, indigenous population and a subsistence pattern that merges horti-culture and marine resources gathering. The cause of death of the individuáis may be related to certain bone indicators that suggest the presence of tuberculosis between the examined population.

Palabras clave : Chiloé; tuberculosis; paleopathology; bioanthropology; hispanic contact.
