BORRERO, Luis A. Con lo mínimo: los debates sobre el poblamiento de América del Sur. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2015, vol.16, n.1, pp.5-38. ISSN 1850-373X.

The debate about the peopling of America has been significantly transformed in recent years, mainly due to the increasing use of sophisticated analytical techniques, the recovery of relevant information at a variety of contexts, and the acceptance of ages older than 12,000 radiocarbon years. Sadly, information for South America is still not always efficiently produced. Ambiguous but ambitious claims from places like Arroyo Vizcaíno, in Uruguay, or Vale da Pedra Furada in Brazil, are still prominent. Even so, it must be said that the classic acceptance criteria used to validate sites are no longer useful. The discussion of the older sites in a region should reflect a tension between being strict (to avoid accepting wrong claims) and being broad (to retain potentially useful cases). The importance of taphonomy in these discussions cannot be minimized.
