Summary

This paper explores the hierarchical differences between households at the site of Panquilma. Previous studies at the site have identified two types of household compounds: central and peripheral. Despite the fact that central compounds are bigger and located closer to the public buildings of the site, no other difference has been identified that can point towards the presence and the nature of any type of hierarchical distinction between both types of domestic compounds. Using 3-D reconstruction recorded at a domestic and central compound, respectively, this paper will be based in the assessment of differences between both types of households in terms of the household developmental cycle. To this end, I will identify remodeling events associated with the different activities that took place at these domestic spaces.
