Big Pictures, Broad Questions, and Archaeological Knowledge along the Steppe and the Forest in the Southern Argentinean Patagonia
This is an abstract from the "Patagonian Evolutionary Archaeology and Human Paleoecology: Commending the Legacy (Still in the Making) of Luis Alberto Borrero in the Interpretation of Hunter-Gatherer Studies of the Southern Cone" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Luis Alberto Borrero changed the way archaeological knowledge was produced in Southern Patagonia (and beyond). We consider three analytical units that underlie his legacy: the landscape, the artifact, and the element (bone). The distributional perspective allows analysis of the interrelationship of the three units within ecological-evolutionary frameworks and allows the comparison of different environments. This is the structure –plus an epistemology centered on falsification- for building broad questions mostly related to Holocene hunter-gatherer landscape use in a changing environment. Case studies from the Tar-San Martin and Viedma Lake basins as well as from the Coyle, Gallegos and Penitente River basins are discussed.
