GUTIERREZ, Guillermo. Formation processes of site in a shipwreck of the twentieth century: The case of Steamship President Roca (Peninsula Valdes, Chubut). Zaranda ideas [online]. 2016, vol.14, n.2, pp.131-150. ISSN 1853-1296.

In Valdes peninsula, 22 km north of the Punta Delgada lighthouse, lie the remains of the steamship Presidente Roca. Since 1904, this vessel was used for transport along Patagonian courses. The ship was lost in 1909 because of a fire (Kludas, 1976). The boat remains woefully inadequate in relation to material that survived the catastrophe this paper seeks to address this problem. Metal-hulled and steam-powered shipwrecks have been studied within maritime archeology. This paper intends to address the formation processes that affected the steamship from before its sinking until present time. The main focus will be human action on the wreck. With this in mind, we apply the theoretical model of M. Gibbs (2006), which systematically organizes events concerning the loss of the ship and any further events that may affect a shipwreck
