CARIA, Mario A.; GOMEZ AUGIER, Julián  y  MIGUEZ, Gabriel E.. Prehispanic food in the lowlands of Tucumán (Argentine): a first approach to its analysis. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.3, pp.07-22. ISSN 1852-060X.

Abstract This work presents a characterization of food resources and pre-Hispanic feeding in Tucumán Province lowlands, Argentina. Based on the work of different researchers in this area, the archaeological evidences and contexts of food findings are analyzed, while some aspects related to the ways of obtaining, producing and circulating them at a regional level are discussed. It is observed that there was a very diverse use of food resources, both wild and domesticated, during the 1st and 2nd millennium AD. This makes it possible to distinguish, at a first approach, between those obtained by hunting-gathering and fishing, from those produced by crop harvesting or raising animals. The preparation of meals, based on all these resources, implies that the groups in the area had to practice control mechanisms for them through horticulture practice, hunting and animal breeding, mostly local, in addition to resources obtained through exchange networks, reciprocity and/or direct exploitation of different ecological floors.
