Summary

A great increase of archaeological knowledge from the Pampean region of Argentina occurred in the last 20 years. Three main approaches were explored in detail by means of archaeological research that contributed to broadening our understanding of hunter-gatherers in the past: interdisciplinary studies, geochronology, and taphonomy. These perspectives were either initiated or reinforced in our projects by Eileen Johnson. The aim of this presentation is to highlight the main contributions that these approaches have done to the archaeology of the region. Specifically, we will discuss the impact of her work on topics such as early human peopling, Pleistocene faunal extinctions and Holocene survival, and paleoenvironmental reconstruction.
