Resumo

The analysis through Geographic Information Systems (GIS), supplemented by chemical studies of living floors, analysis of the distribution artifacts and the creation of photoplanes allows the evaluation of activity areas in huntergatherers societies These studies can be complemented with analysis of micro debris and traces of use through metallographic microscopy and electron microscopy (SEM) in order to a better evaluation about the functionality of the artifacts associated with specific areas. The aim of this analysis is a multidisciplinary approach on the study of the everyday life of preceramic societies and here we present the results of Santa Marta Rockshelter in Mexico as a case study
