ALBERTI, Jimena. El análisis de la colección O. Menghin del Instituto de Arqueología (Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Universidad de Buenos Aires): Artefactos líticos provenientes de la costa rionegrina. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.1, pp.107-120. ISSN 1850-373X.

In this paper the results of the techno-morphological and raw material analyses of the collection of lithic materials collected by Oswald Menghin between 1952 and 1955 along the coast of San Matías Gulf (Río Negro province, Argentina) are presented. The collection is stored at the Institute of Archaeology, Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Universidad de Buenos Aires. In addition to lithic artifacts, the collection contains ceramic sherds and mollusk shells. Patterns in the lithic material are presented and a brief comparison made with the archaeological remains recovered from the area by the research team. This study enlarged knowledge of aspects of lithic artifact manufacture, use and discard by the human groups that inhabited coastal Río Negro province. The analysis of private museums and/or university collections is considered essential since it highlights the scientific value of such collections and allows the generation of information that can be made available to the scientific community and general public.

Keywords : San Matías Gulf; Historical-Cultural School; Menghin; Lithic assamblages artifacts.
