Rethinking and Refining the Activities Associated with the Monumental Compounds of Jatanca, Peru
Author(s): John Warner
The Late Formative Period site of Jatanca is located in the southern sector of the Jequetepeque Valley, Peru. The five architecturally intricate monumental compounds that make up the core of this site housed sociopolitical, economic, and ritual activities that operated at a variety of interdependent scales. Recent excavations in 2014 within Compound I have further refined our knowledge of the relationships between the complex multiscalar activities that took place within these important spaces. This paper will discuss how our interpretation of compound-specific activities has developed over the last ten years of continuous research at this important North Coast site.
