The many events (workshops and schools) organized over the years have shown the validity of this group for(More)
We introduce here our research project on the simulation of the historical trajectory of Patagonian societies since 13000 BP until the present. It pretends to be an explanatory simulation model whose aim is to identify yet unknown relationships and interactions that could have been present in the history of those societies, but we do not have any(More)
