Verónica Schuster, Alberto E. Pérez, Gabriela I. Massaferro

Arqueol. Iberoam.

We present the results obtained from the lithic studies of the archaeological findings from the El Castillo site (Chubut, Argentine Patagonia), which show a predominance of the use of local raw materials – mainly xylopal and chalcedony – for the manufacture of an expeditious technology composed of natural-edged and multipurpose tools, as well as for the elaboration of formatted artifacts.

Archaeology; lithic analysis; Chubut River valley; Patagonia; Argentina.
