ZUBIMENDI, Miguel Ángel; CASTRO, Alicia; AMBRUSTOLO, Pablo  e  CONTRERAS, Carolina. A fossil shark tooth used as a pendant at the Punta Medanosa archaeological locality (north coast of Santa Cruz). Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp.95-100. ISSN 1852-060X.

Abstract During a surface sampling of archaeological materials on a shellmidden in the Punta Medanosa locality, a fossil shark tooth clearly associated was recovered. The location of the shellmidden on a matrix of erosion dunes, seated on late Holocene cordons, allowed us to affirm that this finding corresponded to a ecofact or biofact, that is, a natural product transported to this site. Subsequently, by means of macro and microscope laboratory analysis work, it was found that it was a modified artefact by polishing and notching, which would have allowed its use as a pendant, probably as a corporal adornment. In this note, a description of the recovered piece is presented, as well as the studies carried out to support its allocation as a corporal adornment.

Palavras-chave : "Isurus" hastalis; Ecofact; Shellmidden; Personal adornment.
