Sumario:This article presents the results of an analysis on the archaeofaunal remains from Trenches 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the Rincón Chico 15 site (Yocavil Valley, Catamarca, Argentina). Rincón Chico 15 was a residential unit and a specialist workshop, inhabited mostly from the 12th to 16th Century (Regional Developments and Inka periods). The data presented here largely corroborates the results of previous zooarchaeological research at the site. Nevertheless, when comparing against earlier reports, there was some divergence in taxonomic and age composition of the Camelidae data. These divergent results from the same site, suggest sampling problems, as well as the variability in economic practices that took place at Rincón Chico 15.
