Resumen

SERNA, ALEJANDRO  y  PRATES, LUCIANO. Bioarchaeology and chronology of the Negro Muerto 2 site (Northeast Patagonia). Magallania [online]. 2012, vol.40, n.2, pp.233-245. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442012000200011.

In this paper we present the first results for the analysis of human remains recovered at the Negro Muerto 2 (NM2) site, located in the south sector of the Negro river’s middle basin (Río Negro Province). During the rescue activities done at the site, four individuals had been recovered: individuals 1 and 2 were part of a double burial (the latter suffered a disarticulation at the level of the skull, which was relocated next to the first one); while individuals 3 and 4 were probably simple burials, although their high degree of disarticulation would not allow us to confrm this. Three radiocarbon dates were obtained for this site between 2,000 and 1,500 years BP. The skull of the individual 2, dated in 1,586 ± 47 years BP, presents a tabular oblique cranial deformation; in this case the date obtained is less than the expected for such morphology.

Palabras clave : Bioarchaeology; Late Holocene; Northeast Patagonia; multiple burials.
