    Abstract

    © 2016 ARQUEOLOGÍA IBEROAMERICANA. This work focuses on the spatial variability of the archaeological record at hunter-gatherer sites on the Atlantic coast of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. The theoretical and methodological approach was developed using a quantitative toolset. The main goal is to evaluate occupation intensity based on three case studies and using three different approaches: spatial statistics, archaeological record diversity, and use-wear analysis. The results show relationships among the respective levels of complexity seen in the social organization of space, material record variability, and occupation intensity.
