Lugar: Cham; Año: 2018; p. 131 - 156
For the Northwestern Argentina (NWA) between AD 1000 and 1430, theproposed situation encompasses the existence of a state of political fragmentation, conflict situations, and the emergence of hierarchies materialized in the presence of defensive settlements or pukaras, iconography, war paraphernalia, and evidences of trauma on human remains, always considering the climatic changes that occurred in the Andes starting in the thirteenth century as one of the causes. The archaeological information from the high ravines of Valle Calchaquí Medio (VCM) located in thecurrent province of Salta, NWA between eleventh and seventeenth centuries,allowed us to hypothesize a continuity in the occupation of this space followinglogics and practices from pre-Hispanic times which were linked to the subsistence and social reproduction, such as seasonal and altitudinal management.
