Technological approach of Obsidian sources in North Patagonian: Comparative studies between plain and highlands sources
Obsidian sources in northern Patagonian reflect they early use (ca. 8000 years BP). Provenance studies conducted so far realize that obsidian sources located in the Andes even with limited access (only during the summer) are those that reflect a wider spatial dispersion and more continuous use than those located in the plains. In this way, the sources located in the plains, reflect a local use and for the last 1000 years BP. This presentation compares the results of the technological studies that have been sampled in the mountainous source "Las Cargas" and in the plain source called "El Peceño". The results obtained from both sources show differences in procurement activities carried out and allow discuss models proposed for southern Mendoza.
