Arqueología de los paisajes forestales del norte de Mendoza, centro-oeste Argentina (siglos VIII–XIX) (Paperback)
This book proposes a way of studying the history of forest landscapes from an archaeological perspective: more precisely, through the analysis of charcoal remains recovered from archaeological sites in the north of the Mendoza province, in central-west Argentina. The study focuses on the period between 1200 and 100 years BP, starting by developing a contextual theoretical framework for the Prehispanic, Colonial and Republican periods. It aims to understand the characteristics of forest landscapes associated with different contexts of analysis according to their forms, the identification of categories of relationship between humans and plants, and the daily practices of the communities studied. The work includes a collection of reference images and descriptions of carbonized woods, useful for those undertaking new research both in the area studied and in other phytogeographically or historically related areas.
