    Abstract

    The article is devoted to the lithic industries of the most ancient cultures on the Pacific coast of Ecuador - preceramic Las Vegas culture (10,840-6600 BP) and early pottery culture (5500-3500 BP). The original model of the "Tropical package" for the transitional period from hunter-gatherers to early agriculturalists is proposed on the basis of techno-typological and use-wear analysis.
