Abstract

In this paper we have analyzed the data regarding the environmental aspects and the archaeological sites surveyed during one of the stage from Uruguay Archaeological Rescue Project, held between the 1980’s and 1990’s. We present some reflections on the dynamics of the area and anthropic action, and how these processes might have altered the sites until the time of their record. We underline the importance of the relativity of the information collected simultaneously to avoid misinterpretations.
