Archaeological Project pipeline Chihuahua -Durango " (preliminary results)


This paper is a preliminary result of the archaeological survey and recording surface of the "Project Pipeline Chihuahua and Durango". The relevance and importance of the identified sites lies in being unique in the area, located in places of possible transit that allowed to humans groups moved from one camp to another camp and one workstation to another, according to the plain and sometimes even stay overnight at the site. The transit zone of small bands of hunter-gatherers has been recognized by the dispersion of scarce materials over large areas. There are several hypotheses to explain how human groups (hunter-gatherers) inhabited these places overcoming constraints; this was based on the high degree of economic strategy and selection of food, like plants, space and natural resources. As far the material evidence of the sites, ceramics, polished and carved lithics. So far the archaeological research of Durango and Chihuahua has allowed a glimpse of the importance and complexity of the groups who occupied a long period of time, in which important moments of the history were developed.
