Three sites in the Santa Maria valley in northwestern Argentina have been studies: the Caspinchangok Chiquimil and Pichao sites. Of specific interest are the aspects of social differnentiation that are reflected in the graves. Am important question is how these aspects are distorted by ritual and depositional processes. Special attention will be given to events taking place during the burial, and I shall attempt to contextualise the results of the analysis. This will be done by looking at the ethnohistorical sources and by comparing excavated graves with structures at the site of El Picao." the Aim.
