BAYON, Cristina; MARTINEZ, Gustavo A.; ARMENTANO, Gabriela  y  SCABUZZO, Clara. Arqueología del valle inferior del río Colorado: El sitio La Primavera. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2004, n.5, pp.39-53. ISSN 1850-373X.

The preliminary results of the archaeological investigations carried out at La Primavera site (Villarino district, Buenos Aires Province) are presented. The site was discovered in 1997 when human bones and archaeological materials were exposed during the excavation of irrigation channels. Two incomplete human burials were recorded at that moment as part of a rescue strategy. The archaeological research was continued during 2000 when stratigraphic test-pits were dug and surface transects were performed. The information recovered is here used to address aspects associated with site boundaries and artifact distribution throughout the area, as well as cultural and natural formation processes. This paper also includes information on: burials and isolated human bones, chronology, lithic raw material availability and technology, faunal remains and isotope information. The chronology of La Primavera site at the beginning of the late Holocene (ca. 3000 BP) and its location in the ecotone zone of the lower basin of the Colorado river leads to the comparison of results with those from sites of the neighboring areas, such as the Southern Pampean region (Buenos Aires province) and North Patagonia (Río Negro and Chubut provinces). In this regard, certain aspects such as modalities in human burials and chronological information between the areas mentioned above are compared in order to shed new light on the social processes of late Holocene Pampean and Patagonian populations.
