For those who do not know, Apipé Island corresponds to the Argentine Republic in the province of Corrientes . This is located in front of the city of Ituzaingó and is the closest point to the Yacyretá dam. It is a quiet place, with few inhabitants. Therefore, it is not difficult to imagine the amazement of the workers who rose one day to go to work and made history . It all started when they attended the expansion of the village hospital and, when they removed the land as a usual step, they perceived something rare. They were the remains of large vases and lithic material that would correspond to ancient inhabitants . Noticing it, they guarded the find as if it were gold .
Immediately, the municipal authorities were notified that they ran for protection and registration . There, elements decorated with paintings, corrugated and unguiculate were verified that, by their style, would belong to the Guaraní community . As for the antiquity of archaeological materials, it is assumed that it could reach 2000 years . This is because it is a date when it is known with certainty that this population arrived in Correntine lands . It was also reported that its usefulness would be to be part of funeral ballot boxes . However, they did not find on site other indicators to corroborate it. In this way, they explained that it was now necessary to carry out a deep investigation in the place of the fact.
Under this line, the space of discovery was delimited so that the procedure is respected. In addition, the construction site will progress more slowly to avoid further damage to any remaining remains on the ground. In this regard, they stressed the responsibility of workers to make objects visible and slow down in time . From now on, the remains will be in charge of the quartermaster of Isla Apipé for preservation .
The province of Corrientes covers the region that the Guaraní called Taragüí . They were supposed to arrive in the area following the river courses, in the middle of the first millennium BC. C. Then, they established themselves forming seminomadic communities along the coast of the Paraná River, which would last until colonial times . During the settlement, they maintained hostile relations with other inhabitants, such as the charrúas . The latter subsequently gave rise to the province of Entre Rios and the Eastern Republic of Uruguay.
With the arrival of the Spaniards, Guarani life was profoundly altered and beliefs had to be abandoned or mixed with Christian ones. Thereafter, the conquistadors transmitted images and practices , which were assimilated by the natives without their disappearing. Accordingly, it gave rise to a rich range of myths and legends that remain to this day .
The material discovered in Apipé Island is not the first to appear in the Ituzaingó area or its surroundings. In fact, findings of the same type were previously recorded when archaeological impact studies were carried out by the construction of Yacyretá. Because of the importance of these events, the provincial state acceded to Law No. 25,743 on the Protection of Archaeological and Paleontological Heritage . Thus, registration is made of all sites and collections that may appear in special or particular circumstances. Other probabilities are the extraordinary downspouts of the river, or some private or public work in the removal of land.
