Conflicts over Coca Fields in Sixteenth-Century Perú

María Rostworowski de Diez Canseco

Many archaeologists and ethnohistorians use historic documents to help interpret prehistoric archaeological sequences. A sixteenth-century Spanish document called Justicia 413 has been instrumental in helping researchers understand conflict among the prehistoric polities of coastal Peru. In this volume, author María Rostworowski de Diez Canseco describes the archaeology of the region as it relates to the Justicia 413 and explains the main themes of the historic work. The final part of the book is the Justicia 413, reprinted in its entirety for the first time.
