Abstract

La Colección Doncellas depositada desde mediados de este siglo en el Museo Etnográfico (Buenos Aires) y en el Museo del Pucará (Tilcara, Jujuy) proviene del sitio homónimo ubicado en el Departamento de Cochinoca, Provincia de Jujuy en la Puna Argentina. Los materiales que la forman (tejidos, cestería, cordelería, madera tallada, calabazas pirograbadas, cerámicos y líticos) fueron exhumados en su totalidad de enterratorios del tipo chulpa con fechas entre el 1200 A.D hasta la ocupación hispánica. En este trabajo se presenta el análisis de piezas de cordelería («bozales» y sogas) de materias primas vegetales cuyo estudio, asociado al de otras evidencias de la misma colección, permite plantear la relación entre estos enterratorios y la actividad caravanera que sustentó el intercambio de productos en el altiplano andino. The Doncellas collection deposited on the Etnographic Museum (Buenos Aires) and the Pucará Museum (Tilcara, Jujuy) since the forties becomes from the homonymous site placed in the Departement of Cochinoca, Province of Jujuy, in the argentine Puna.
