Abstract

The new site in Quebrada Puripica (Atacama basin, northern Chile) provides information about both the archaeological and the paleoclimatological questions and sheds light on an interesting period. The exceptional combination of archaeological fireplaces preserved and embedded in debris flows from individual storms allows i) to establish a precise chronology for individual storms (frequency and intensity) by radiocarbon dating the archaeological fireplaces and ii) to document the succession of cultural development based on the stratigraphy of fireplaces and associated cultural features, physically separated by alluvial deposits
