REYES, Mariano R  y  PERALTA G, Santiago. Techno-morphological analysis and raw materials of lithic artifacts from Laguna de la Flecha 10 site (Lago Musters, Chubut). Magallania [online]. 2014, vol.42, n.2, pp.199-210. ISSN 0718-2244.

This research is part of a general project about the utilization of fluvial environments by hunter-gatherers in the area of Musters Lake (Chubut, Argentina) during the late Holocene. The principal aim is to assess the existence of economic diversification and to establish the way in which this particular environment was used. The results presented here refer to the studies of the lithic material of Laguna de La Flecha 10 (LF10), a site located in the north-east area of the lake. The site is associated with hearths dated ca. 1.140 years BP. In order to characterize the organization of lithic technology of the occupations, by the way of the techno-morphologic analysis of the artefactual assemblage, we assess assemblage typological diversity and raw material composition. The results of this study indicate a high artefactual diversity and the types of instruments represented suggest a residential utilization of the site. This would allow us to characterize LF10 as a base camp, where many activities were performed. Nevertheless, considering the small size of the artefactual set, and specially the low number of instruments, we conclude that it had been occupied for short periods of time. In addition, we consider that the local raw material used was acquired within an embedded strategy.
