In the appendix of his recent paper, Bracco (2006:511-540) made several comments and misinterpretations regarding the interdisciplinary scientific evidence produced by our team at the Los Ajos site in southeastern Uruguay. Among other things, he claims that we: (a) pushed back the archaeological agenda in Uruguay by twenty years; (b) failed to recognize the previous work of our colleagues in the region; (c) forced our paleoenvironmental data to fit the cultural sequence; and (d) claimed, without evidence, the domestic nature of mounds during the Preceramic Mound Period at the Los Ajos site. In this comment, we respond to Bracco's allegations.
