Abstract: Arqueologia.
Abstract: An archaeological programme beginning in 1993, in the Beagle Channel, aims to describe the long-term record of maritime faunal exploitation, and relate it to the environmental record. Results from quantitative analysis of remains from a series of shell midden excavations indicate a remarkably stable and resilient marine biota over the last 6500 years. Only in the previous century have there been changes in fauna, which might correspond to recent global warming.
