BONOMO, Mariano et al. Current research at Laguna de los Gansos archaeological locality (Diamante, Entre Ríos). Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.2, pp.51-66. ISSN 1852-060X.

Archaeological research recently carried out at the Upper Delta of the Paraná River is aimed to widen our knowledge about regional archaeology, understood as long-term indigenous history. In this paper the results of the zooarchaeological, bioarchaeological, geoarchaeological, pottery and radiocarbon analyses performed at Laguna de Los Gansos archaeological locality are presented. Two sites (LDLG1 and LDLG2) emplaced along a levee, west of Los Gansos lagoon, were excavated. At LDLG1 many potsherds (including zoomorphic appendages) and archaeofaunal remains characterized by high frequencies of coypu, capybara and marsh deer were found. This site represents a set of successive brief occupations of a levee occupied between 1200 and 1800 14C years BP. At LDLG2 human remains (primary and secondary inhumations) dated between 570 and 590 14C years BP were found associated with potsherds, charcoal and archaeofaunal remains. In sum, Laguna de Los Gansos locality exhibits a deep history of use of the Paraná fluvial islands and its aquatic resources. Furthermore, its early chronology enables the discussion of the origin and spread of Goya-Malabrigo in the light of recent ethnogenesis models.
