The arrival of the Incas and it consequences in the transformation of the sociopolitical landscape of the lower Lurin valley
Lately, several research projects have been taking place in the Lurin valley, central coast of Peru, in archaeological sites dating to the Late Intermediate Period (s. XVII-XV) and the Late Horizon (s. XV-XVI). This work has been complemented with recent studies focused on the presence of a segment of the Qhapaq Ñan and its importance as an articulating axis between these settlements during the Late Horizon. Preliminary results of these research studies have allowed us to reevaluate hypothesis about the type of sociopolitical organization of these communities during the Late Intermediate Period and the transformations that may have occurred with the arrival of the Inca state. This paper presents the results of a series of surveys that took place in different settlements of the lower Lurin valley. The data is then compared with data obtained from excavations in some of these same settlements in order to establish in what way their sociopolitical organization would have changed during the Inca occupation.
