First Evidence of Macrobotanical Remains in the Archaeological Site Familia Primon (Santa Fe, Argentina)

Arqueol. Iberoam.

Macrobotanical remains have a low recovery frequency in archaeological sites of Northeast Argentina. Their preservation is affected —among other factors— by the environmental conditions in the area, for instance humidity and rainfall. Therefore, research that uses this kind of evidence as a proxy is scarce. This paper aims to show the first carpological remains —which belong to Annona emarginata and Harrisia martinii species— in the archaeological site Familia Primon (Santa Fe, Argentina) to assess its archaeological implications. The results bring information about the potential exploitation of vegetable resources in the past and complement palynological studies in the above-mentioned site.
