Abstract. This study analyzes the activity areas within an archaeological dwelling from the Tafí valley, with the aim of addressing the spatial organization of quotidian activities developed during the first millennium AD. The analyzed household (U14), is located in the villager archaeological site La Bolsa 1, located in the north of the Tafí valley (Tucumán, Argentina), and inhabited since 200 BC up to 800 AD. Analyses included the study of fixed and semi-fixed features of the architectural structure, the morphological, technological and functional characteristics of pottery and lithic assemblages, and soil chemistry analysis from occupational floors. This information was complemented with previously studied evidence —botanical microfossils, radiocarbon dates and animal bones.
Keywords: Archaeology, activity areas, Formative period, North Western Argentina.
