Abstract:

this paper analyzes the assemblage of military artifacts from fort general paz, carlos casares, buenos aires, headquarters of the so-called western frontier between 1869 and 1877. a broad approach is employed, including both the typological and functional analysis of the artifacts and the examination of the documentary record, which comprises contemporary witnesses' accounts as well as official records and military regulations. since it was a sizeable military garrison, the assemblage allows us to assess the intended process of construction of an efficient national army, a principal goal of the first liberal governments after 1862. the analysis shows a great degree of variation in the weapons employed by the garrison as well as a loose application of the regulations concerning uniforms, indicating that the standardization and regularization sought by the national authorities were far from being achieved. bioarchaeological evidence in meridional patagonia. the orejas de burro 1 site (pali aike, santa cruz province).
