added by archaeologs A site in Cordoba, northwestern Argentina, which has evidence of a transition from Big Game Hunting to a more specialized hunting and gathering economy. The assemblage contains crude, large bifacial willow-leaf projectile points, lithic hunting tools, and tool-making debris in association with manos and milling stones, dating between 8,000-12,000 years ago.
added by archaeologs An open camp-site in the province of Cordoba in northwest Argentina containing evidence which implies a transition from generalized big game hunting to a more specialized, regionally oriented hunting and gathering economy. The assemblage contains lithic hunting tools and toolmanufacturing debris in association with manos and milling stones, and is noticeably similar to Level IV at Intihuasi Cave. The willow-leaf projectile point is particularly characteristic, and has cognates over a wide area of the region. There are no radiocarbon dates, but comparison with Intihuasi, Lauri-COCHA Caves and elsewhere suggests a period of occupation in the early 6th millenium bc.
