SVOBODA, Ariadna  and  GOMEZ OTERO, Julieta. Explotación de fauna dulceacuícola en el valle inferior del río Chubut (Patagonia central) durante el Holoceno tardío. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2015, vol.16, n.1, pp.39-52. ISSN 1850-373X.

This article presents and discusses the results of a new archaeofaunal study of two archaeological sites from the lower valley of the Chubut River, dated to 1500 -1200 BP. These assemblages stand out because of the exploitation of freshwater fauna (fish, birds and coipo) over the guanaco, the main resource for hunters-gatherers from Patagonia. The relationship between the faunal remains, intensification processes, and situational factors, such as sudden and catastrophic river floods, is discussed.

Keywords : Freshwater faunal exploitation; Hunter-gatherers; Lower Valley of the Chubut River; Late Holocene.
