MACROSCALES, PEOPLING AND THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL RECORD IN NORTHWEST AND WESTERN-CENTRAL PATAGONIA
MACROESCALAS, POBLAMIENTO Y REGISTRO ARQUEOLÓGICO EN EL NOROESTE Y CENTRO-OESTE DE PATAGONIA

In the present article, we discuss the macroscale issue in archaeological research, using the peopling model of Patagonia and the regional taphonomy proposed by Luis Borrero, and their application in our archaeological project in the Pico and Genoa valleys (Western-Central sector of Chubut Province, Argentina). In the case of the peopling model, we distinguish two types of use, which we define as strong/direct and weak/indirect. A synthesis and update of the results under this perspective is presented, as well as advances in regional taphonomy.
