CABRAL ORTIZ, Jorge E.; MERCURI, Cecilia; GARCIA DE CECCO, Pilar  y  MENDOZA, Federico G.. Lightning stones: lithics analysis from an holistic perspective. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.1, pp.115-120. ISSN 1852-060X.

Abstract For some time, there has been an increasing interest in the combination of different types of analysis for a better understanding of the uses, exploitation and production of lithic raw materials and instruments. Thus, different lines of evidence are promoted from an integral perspective of approaching the instruments, fostering research that raises the advantages of complementarity and holistic analysis. On December 2017, archaeological rescue excavations were carried out at the Cac8 site known as Capilla de la Aguada, in Cachi, Salta. These activities are framed in a process of dialogue with the community organizations through which encounters arise that highlight a joint construction of knowledge, where material heritage acquires a meaning for the community. In this context, the study of the lithic material was carried out through a holistic and integral approach in which the traditional methodologies of techno-typological analysis were combined with the register of interviews with the settlers are contemplated. According to the preliminary study, it is proposed an event of a ritual nature in which the presence of 10 polished quartz stones stands out, being practically the only lithic artifacts recovered in excavation, in which the ceramic material is very abundant.
