2020. Romano and Serna. Enthesial changes in a bioarchaeological sample from Northeastern Patagonia: first results of a methodological comparison.by Victoria Romano and Alejandro SernaRevista Argentina de Antropología Biológica, 2020This paper presents the first approach to the study of enthesial changes on human remains from Northeastern Patagonia. Taking into account that two of the frequently used recording methods are based on different assumptions, “Hawkey and Merbs” and “Coimbra”, it is proposed to compare and discuss the results obtained from the application of both and the implementation of a new quantification measure. For this purpose, bone elements of the upper and lower limb are analyzed in a sample from the middle valley of the Negro River. The intraobserver error was calculated and the data analysis was based on two quantification measures: the presence of at least one change and the Affectation Index. Comparison between methods shows different trends. From Hawkey and Merbs there is no clear trend of involvement, and from Coimbra a greater involvement of the lower limb.Save to LibraryDownloadEditCompare Citation Rank Readers Related Papers MentionsView Impact
Interview to Dr Marcos Maidana By Alejandro Meda Part 1
This paper shows the sites in the south of the Iberian Peninsula where human bone remains have been found. The established chronological limit runs from the first hominins population of that territory to the arrival of the anatomically modern humans. The geographic area includes the current territories of Andalusia and Gibraltar. The remains found are the first evidence that both regions were intensely populated during ancient prehistory.
This paper shows the sites in the south of the Iberian Peninsula where human skeletal remains have been found. The chronological limit established runs from the first hominins that populated the territory until the arrival of anatomically modern humans. The geographical limit is delimited by the current territories of Andalusia and Gibraltar. The remains found are the first evidence that both regions were intensely populated during the Ancient Prehistory.
In spite of the above, thanks to the analysis of the green obsidian itself, as well as the discovery of ceramic pieces and architecture coinciding with the Teotihuacan period, we have data on the daily functioning of the mining workshops.
In these family workshops, as well as in others that could have been more specialized, depending on the quality of the elements found and the presence of more than one furnace, projectile points, knives for ritual use or carvers to create other weapons made of wood, such as the atlatl (dart propellers) would have been elaborated.
The academic comments that another line of research, which resorts to experimental archaeology to replicate the productive processes, points to the possibility that the blades and projectile points were “the obsidian artifacts that were most in demand from Teotihuacan” and, possibly, partially worked in the Sierra de las Navajas, so that other artisans could finish them in the workshops of the great pre-Hispanic city.

Alejandro Alberto Castro Castro (San Bernardo, September 20, 1988 – Valparaíso, October 4, 2018) was a Chilean environmental activist. His death, officially recognized as a suicide, has been the subject of several conspiracy theories.
Several months before his death, he had allegedly suffered from an “undiagnosed pathology” that was never medically treated, which caused him to suffer from depression and alcoholism. According to several witnesses, he had tried to commit suicide two previous times.
Although the Carabineros de Chile and the Investigative Police dismissed the idea that he was murdered, Castro’s family insisted that he had received death threats in the previous days, which prompted an investigation by the director general of the PDI, Héctor Espinosa. There were no external injuries to his body visible. Castro’s friend, Carolina Orellana, was a friend of Castro’s, Carolina Orellana, who was a friend of Castro’s. A friend of Castro’s, Carolina Orellana, was also a friend of his.
A friend of Castro’s, Carolina Orellana, said that an unidentified police officer had shouted at him during a protest, “Alejandro Castro, we have you on file!” and that “They wanted to put him in jail out of the blue.”
