HEIDER, Guillermo  and  CURTONI, Rafael Pedro. Archaeological research at San Luis Province: 150 years of its inception, history and prospects. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.1, pp.35-48. ISSN 1852-060X.

The first mentions of the archeology of San Luis province occurred in 1867, being part of the initial work of the Argentinean Archeology. However, the main feature of the history of the investigations in the province is discontinuity, with pulses that were vanguard at the national and South American level (first radiocarbon dating of the country), at moments with total absence of studies. To understand these oscillations, which occurred in the last 150 years, we make a review of the history of the discipline within the province. This synthesis does not try to be a succession of bibliographic citations about researchers, but also includes research programs, institutions and paradigms from which different projects were generated. The combination of these variables allowed us to delineate four periods of research and analyze the causes that promoted the working agendas, considering the current situation in order to propose development perspectives for the archaeology of San Luis.

Keywords : San Luis Province; History of Archaeology; Politics and scientific context; Paradigms; Discontinuity.
