Summary

The following presentation will compare and contrast two funerary bundles found in the Cerro de Oro site (Cañete Valley, Peru). One from an intrusive Wari funerary structure, with more than 250 offerings, including over 100 textiles which present an unusual variety of manufacturing techniques and iconography. The other, from a local earlier Cerro de Oro occupation; though smaller in size and quantity of offerings, is still impressive being the first bundle of this complexity found for this time period. By making special emphasis on the analyses of the textile offerings, it will be attempted to show both continuity and change in the funerary practices for this two different occupations of the same site.
