The Santa María valley is located in the northern sector of the Sierras Pampeanas in Northwest Argentina. In spite of its arid characteristics, it was a densely populated area during the Pre-hispanic period. The populations developed an agropastoral economy, taking advantage of the wetter epochs that characterized some periods. The study of fluvio-...

Earthworks are one of the most distinctive archaeological features in the wetland landscapes of South America. Herein, we provide a case study from one of the southernmost expressions of this earthworking phenomenon, the Paraná River Delta. In this flood-prone wetland, occupation strategies included the construction and habitation of earth-mounds a...

The results of the analysis of hair remains from a hunter-gatherer grave from northern Patagonia are presented in this paper. One of the samples analyzed consisted in hair that remained attached to the hide used to manufacture a small pouch left in the burial pit as a funerary offering. The second sample was taken from the inside of the same pouch....

The aim of this paper is to discuss the origin of a series of cavities from an area of the Atlantic coast in the Pampean Region known as the Caracolero from Claromecó (Tres Arroyos County, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina) which, have been interpreted as human footprints. They are located on a rock that outcrops on the littoral abrasion platform. T...

In this chapter we present the distribution of the agricultural Prehispanic settlements (100-1536 AD) of the central section of the Quilmes Ranges. We started by the photointerpretation of the geomorphology of the area and the characterization of its basins constructing a GIS. Pedestrian surveys were made and superficial potsherds were collected as...

A depositional unit called DU2 identified for the period MIS 3 (ca—30,000–60,000 year B.P.) formed by only one sedimentary facies (F3) was found in the Luján and Salto-Arrecifes rivers basins. F3 is a fluvio–lacustrine unit that overlies in erosive unconformity over eolian sediments with ages of 56,400 ± 6500 and 50,400 ± 10,200 years B.P. and is u...

Las construcciones monticulares en tierra constituyen uno de los registros característicos de la arqueología de las Tierras Bajas sudamericanas. La presencia de estos rasgos en el Delta del río Paraná y el registro cultural preservado en el interior de las mismas, captó la atención académica desde finales del siglo XIX. Desde ese tiempo y hasta el...

The construction of earth mounds (locally called cerritos or túmulos), are one of the main characteristics of the South American Lowland archaeology record. The presence of this landscape feature in the Paraná River Delta and the archaeological materials from them captured academic attention since the end of the 19th Century. From that time until t...

Pre-Hispanic mounds, known as “cerritos,” “cerritos de indios,” or “aterros” across southeastern South America, are one of the most conspicuous and well-studied cultural manifestations in lowlands archaeology. Nevertheless, in the Upper Delta of the Paraná River, mounds are rarely studied, and even their anthropic origin is under debate. This could...
