SUGRANES, Nuria. Ceramic technology and mobility strategies among high altitude hunter-gatherers: the case of Valle Hermoso 1 site, Malargue, Mendoza. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.2, pp. 293-304. ISSN 1850-373X.
This paper draws on the results of analyses of ceramics recovered from the Valle Hermoso 1 site, Malargüe, Mendoza. The mobility strategies of hunter-gatherers with pottery in a high altitude environment are discussed on the basis of these data. The site was initially occupied ca. 1900 BP, and evidence suggests that there are two assemblages with different ceramic materials associated with highly mobile groups that reoccupied the valley seasonally.
