This paper will examine the ceramic forms from excavated contexts at Cerro Colorado de Huacho, Huaura Valley, Peru in order to address conflict, cooperation, and exchange on the central coast of Peru in the Late Intermediate Period (LIP) (AD 1000-1450). Though dominated by Chancay black-on-white and Lauri impressed ceramic styles, the range of diversity in forms from Cerro Colorado is sizable. The diversity of these forms from will be compared and contrasted to ceramics from contemporaneous central coast and highland sites as a means of identifying potential interregional exchange networks and sociopolitical affiliations and how they were developed.
