Summary

This work seeks to characterize the presence of the Gallinazo component in the lower Jequetepeque valley during the Middle Moche period through an analysis of funerary contexts from the sites of San José de Moro, Mazanca, Dos Cabezas and Pacatnamú. Using bibliographic sources and excavation data, this project searches for indicators within burial traditions of interaction between two different cultural groups that coexisted spatially on the north coast of Peru. Through an analysis of a number of grave contexts, this work aims to illuminate the interaction of possible distinct populations with similar cultural traditions, but with distinct stylistic developments. The ultimate objective is this study is to assess whether Gallinazo local elites were subordinated to Mochica elites using the frequency of ceramic styles corresponding to each cultural group within the funerary contexts from the Middle Moche period.
