Le premier peuplement de la côte du Pérou.

Abstract : On the dry western facade of Peru, along the Pacific, the first human occupation been attested is situated at about 10,000-12,000 years BP and is connected with the paleo-Indian horizon of points with groove of El Inga - Cave Fell or points with fish tail. Pedunculated points (of Paijan) quickly supplant the point with fish tail in the desert of Cupisnique. Paijaniens sites are mainly concentrated in the narrow valleys which go down the Andes. The pleistocene big fauna (Horses, Mastodonts, Edentate mammals and huge Camelidae) had disappeared before the arrival of the Human.
