RIVERO, Diego  and  HEIDER, Guillermo. Geometric morphometrics in lanceolate projectile points from Central Hills, Argentina. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2017, vol.10, suppl.1, pp.75-82. ISSN 1852-060X.

Abstract First results of geometric morphometric techniques applied to a sample of lanceolate projectile points are presented in this paper. These lanceolate projectile points, also known as "ayampitín", are common in the Central Mountains of Argentina and they are usually associated with hunter-gatherer occupations dated to the Middle Holocene. The analyses of morphometric variables and its relation with the selected lithic raw material allowed the analyses of the life history of the artifacts and the existent design variables, reflecting a large variability. This assemblage of forty pieces is the first to be analyzed with these techniques and, therefore, results are preliminary.
