TABOADA, Constanza  e  ANGIORAMA, Carlos I.. Searching for the archaeological indicators of the household. Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2003, n.20, pp.393-407. ISSN 1668-8104.

   In this work we consider that the co-residence is the first step to study the household and its activities. The space and the houses to live in become the subject of that social concept. The set of the various appliances found and recovered and how they are spatially distributed permit us to set up the first hypothesis about the organization of the activities of the group living together.    In order to evaluate this model we analyse some superficial evidences of the prehispanic settlement Los Amarillos (Quebrada de Humahuaca, Jujuy) identifying a repeated architectonic pattern. We select a household that could be one of the simplest of them and we start the excavation. As a result of this we recover a varied set of residues. Then diversity of the materials found, seems to indicate the development of a great number of activities: carving and lithic reactivation, making of food, textile works and metallurgical practices. The arrangement of the findings shows a high level of segregation and space regulation, and permit us to propose some inferences and hypothesis.
