The Inca Incorporation of the Canete Valley, Part 1: Conquest or Incanization

Author(s): Eberth Serrudo T.; Lawrence Coben

Year: 2015


Field research by the Canete Archaeological Project has begun to unveil rich data regarding the Inca incorporation of the Middle and Lower Canete Valley. Utilizing both systematic survey and excavations, our work suggests a complex and intensive interaction between the Inca and those who occupied the valley before them. In this paper, we begin to tease out the imperial strategies of incorporation and local responses to them.
