Summary

This poster presents a comprehensive evaluation of INAA work on ceramics from the Southern Nasca Region from the Early Horizon through the Late Intermediate period. For the first time we present previously unpublished work from the Las Trancas Valley in Nasca. The results from the analysis confirm previous studies suggesting centralized production in the region during the Early Intermediate period and decentralized production before and after this period. We attribute this long-term pattern to pilgrimage associated with the ceremonial center Cahuachi and associated behaviors centered at the site.
