HERMO, Darío et al. Piedras o litos discoidales en Norpatagonia: evidencias en la meseta de Somuncurá (Río Negro, Argentina). Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.2, pp.507-511. ISSN 1850-373X.

This paper presents the finding of discoidal stones from Amigo Oeste archaeological site on the Somuncurá plateau (Río Negro, Argentina). This class of artefact has been reported from other early sites in the Southern Cone of South America, in some cases associated with fishtail points. The discoidal stones from Somuncurá show technological and morphological similarities with the rest of the known assemblage of discoidal stones from South America. Their frequency in Amigo Oeste is interpreted as another feature that establishes this hill as a landmark in the landscape of the early peopling of Patagonia.

Keywords : Discoidal stones; Pleistocene/Holocene; North Patagonia.
