Chachapoya domestic architecture: identity and interaction within, across, and beyond regional boundaries (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anna Guengerich.

Recent research among Chachapoya societies, who lived in Northeastern Peru between AD900-1500, has drawn attention to the diversity of material culture associated with different sub-regions spanning this large area. In the face of this diversity, one basis that archaeologists have consistently used for grouping these societies together is domestic architecture. Communities across the Chachapoya region built circular houses out of stone, adorning them with functional and decorative features...

A Good, Old-Fashioned Patio-Group Raising: Domestic Architecture as Ritual among the Classic-Period Maya (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alyce De Carteret.

As anthropological and archaeological scholarship attests, household ritual has a potent role in forging and maintaining sociopolitical relationships both within the household as well as with the communities, cities, and states of which it forms a part. Archaeological research in the Classic Maya area has revealed evidence of feasts, ancestor veneration, dedication and termination caches, and other ritual practices taking part within the limits of the house. The most substantial remnant of...


Investigating Mississippian Site Layout and Architecture in Northeast Arkansas (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jeffrey Mitchem. Jami J. Lockhart. Timothy S. Mulvihill.

In June 2015, the Arkansas Archeological Society Training Program was held at the Richards Bridge site. This Parkin phase village lies along the Tyronza River and was contemporaneous with the Parkin site, located about 16 km away. Geophysical studies revealed well-preserved structure floors at Richards Bridge and four of these were chosen for excavation to see if their construction was identical to those at other Parkin phase sites. A search for fortifications revealed a wooden palisade, but no...


Measuring Household Inequality in Hohokam Society: An Analysis of Domestic Architecture at Pueblo Grande (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Douglas Craig. David Abbott. Hannah Zanotto. Veronica Judd. Brent Kober.

Recent archaeological efforts to explain the emergence and persistence of social inequality have been hampered by a lack of information about how wealth was transmitted across generations and how it may have accumulated or diminished over time. Building on studies that have shown domestic architecture to be an excellent material expression of household wealth, we provide a method for reconstructing the amount of labor invested in house construction at Pueblo Grande, taking into account different...


Walls Speak: Architectural "Neighborhoods" in Late Intermediate Period Peru (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anna Harkey.

In the Yanamarka Valley in central Peru, the Late Intermediate Period saw dramatic changes. Whole villages moved from the valley floors to dense, defensible hilltop settlements, and were still living there when the Incas colonized this region a century later. The remote locations of many of these sites – both those forcibly abandoned under Inca rule, and those which continued on into the early Colonial Period – mean that numerous domestic round houses, storage spaces, patio walls and pathways...
