SUGRANES, Nuria; POMPEI, María de la Paz; NEME, Gustavo  and  GIL, Adolfo. TECHNOLOGY AND MOBILITY IN THE MIDDLE ATUEL: ARCHAEOLOGICAL RECORD OF THE LOS GALLEGOS 1 SITE (SAN RAFAEL, MENDOZA). Comechingonia [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.2, pp.5-36. ISSN 1851-0027.

In this work, we evaluate the technological trends of the lithic and ceramic assemblages of the Los Gallegos 1 archaeological site, located in the middle valley of the Atuel River basin. The main objective is to explore mobility strategies and occupation during the late Holocene in the Monte region in the south of Mendoza province. The results show that the site was a residential camp where multiple activities were carried out. Technological evidence indicates low residential mobility of the human groups that occupied this place towards the end of the late Holocene (ca. 1082 years cal. AP), and where their location prioritized proximity to the Atuel River.

Keywords : Mendoza,lithic and ceramic technology,human mobility; late Holocene.
