DEL PAPA, Mariano C et al. Nuevos análisis bioarqueológicos de la colección osteológica del sitio Paraná Ibicuy 1 (Delta Inferior del río Paraná, Entre Ríos). Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.2, pp.263-267. ISSN 1850-373X.

The aim of this paper is to present new bioanthropological analysis of the osteological collection of Paraná Ibicuy 1 site (Lower Delta of the Paraná River, Entre Ríos Province). These were found during the fieldwork directed by Dra. Caggiano and collegues in 1970 and are currently deposited in the Museo de La Plata. We analyze the conformation of the sample and we describe some pathological signals detected in bone and teeth. In addition, two radiocarbon datings conducted on the skeletons are presented. The bioarchaeological analysis revealed that at the site were buried five individuals, four adults and a subadult. Furthermore, the presence of paleopathological degenerative (osteoarthritis) and dental diseases (dental loss) is showed. Finally, the radiocarbon dates of 1810 and 1480 years BP are relevant as they give more time depth to the burials in the Delta del Paraná, and are one of the earliest evidence for southern dispersion of the Goya Malabrigo cultural entity.

Keywords : Bioarchaeology; Delta of the Paraná River; Late Holocene; Goya Malabrigo cultural entity.
