Seeing Wari through the Lens of the Everyday: Results from the Patipampa Sector of Huari
This collection contains the abstracts of the papers presented in the session entitled "Seeing Wari through the Lens of the Everyday: Results from the Patipampa Sector of Huari," at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
This symposium will present initial analysis of results from two excavation seasons in the Patipampa sector of Huari, Ayacucho, Peru. The Programa Arqueológico Prehistoria Urbana de Huari has revealed distinctive architecture and spatial organization, material culture, and faunal and botanical remains from a non-monumental sector of the Wari capital city. These data allow new insights on the organization of the site, economic and ritual activities, foodways, and the daily lives of the inhabitants. Through comparison with data from both the heartland and the hinterland of the Wari empire, this symposium explores how the findings from the Patipampa sector reflect on broader questions concerning Wari political economy, socio-political organization, and the nature of everyday life during the Middle Horizon.
