In this paper we will present and discuss physical and chemical data collected from different types of human burials distributed in different settings on a lake basin located in north-western SantaCruz province, Argentina, as a preliminary and exploratory step aimed to achieve these goals. This data will be used to discuss the preservation potential of different depositional microenvironments and burial types; to formulate hypotheses about the taphonomic and diagenetic processes involved; and to estimate an overall rate of bone destruction valid for environmental settings that are similar, in their fundamental properties, to those discussed in this paper.
