An archaeological study of ancient settlement patterns in Peru’s rugged and diverse central highlands. The data derive from occupations between 500 BC and the mid-sixteenth century AD. Introductory chapters cover methodology, environmental context, ethnographic analogies for agriculture and pastoralism, and ethnohistory. Substantive chapters consider long-term trends in population, land use, settlement configuration, public architecture, and polity and economy at the local and regional levels. Two appendices provide detailed site and ceramic descriptions, including more than 400 photos. In two volumes (Parts 1 and 2).
Order from the University of Michigan Press.
