Example text

Initially, when ceramic sherds were found at those sites, Veloz Maggiolo and Ortega (1973) indicated they were either intrusive material or were imported from another location. However, a year later Veloz Maggiolo et al. (1974) revisited this evidence and concluded that the presence of ceramics seemed to indicate a group that presented a transitional lifeway from hunting and gathering to a formative organization. When confronted with this evidence, Rouse (1992) indicated that the presence of ceramics in these sites was the result of diffusion of ceramic production from the Saladoid invaders who were occupying the islands around that time.

Due to the fact that the LU-III and IV contained a markedly lower concentration of lithic artifacts in the sample than the overlying layers, I decided to include the materials retrieved from all the excavated units that corresponded to those two lithostratigraphic units (III and IV). This was also done for the primary purpose of obtaining a better panorama of the transitional period that I wish to explore in the present work. This same procedure was applied to formal artifacts that were not represented in enough quantities in the general sample, which included celts, beads, cemís, netweights, stone collar fragments, and other singular artifact types.
