Abstract

This paper presents eleven burials excavated in Perua?u Valley since 1981. After discussing data refering to sex, age and radiocarbon dating, the skeleton position and objects accompaning it are described. Our aim is to discuss the existence of burial patterns in the two Periods (Medium Archaic - 4.500/7.000 BP - and Medium/Recent Ceramist - 600/1.200 BP). We conclude that there are some typical features for each period.
