COSTA, Thiago. A zooarchaeological approach to the practices of hunter-gatherers in the Alero Deodoro Roca (ca. 2970 AP) Ongamira Valley, Córdoba. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.2, pp.93-104. ISSN 1852-060X.

The paper focuses in studying hunter-gatherers and animals relations, using as a case study the faunal remains recovered in the Alero Deodoro Roca (ADR) site, which according to radiocarbon dating are located in the late Holocene (ca. 2970 AP). To characterize these interactions we propose a methodology that involves taphonomically oriented faunal analysis and spatial distribution on the site, using as main tool, geographic information systems (GIS). Thus, it attempts to integrate methodological aspects of interpretive archeology and scientific archeology. Based on our results, we suggest greater presence of ungulates in relation to other species and within these, guanacos (Lama guanicoe) are the majority. Also, taphonomic analyzes suggest good conservation of faunal assemblage, although there are evidence of both, natural and anthropogenic actions in the faunal remains. Distributional analysis results indicate various processing and combustion activities, although higher concentrations in the western sector of the excavations were noticed. According to the above, we concluded that repeated processing activities, with different purposes, and (especially guanaco) consumption was developed in the sector B of ADR site.
