A Technical Attribute Analysis of Textile Band Production at Uraca, Peru
As with other forms of technology, normative patterns in textile production can suggest information about the communities of weavers that produced them. Through an analysis of technical attributes, this poster establishes the normative patterns involved in the production of textile bands at the mortuary site of Uraca in the Majes Valley of Peru and suggests how these patterns relate Uraca to broader textile traditions within the region. More specifically, it examines how Uraca relates to the Siguas textile tradition, associated with the south coastal valleys of the Department of Arequipa. This poster also examines textile bands recovered at Uraca that do not fit within these patterns of production and what they might indicate about the population interred there.
