Summary

Research on the Inca occupation in the conquered territories usually addressed the topic from a perspective that has been built on data obtained from state and local sites. The case of Jauja in the central highlands of Peru has not been the exception and much of our current knowledge about the Inca occupation of the region is based on information coming from indigenous settlements and state facilities. This paper proposes an alternative and complementary insight, trying to reach an approach to the interactions between local communities and the Inca state through the analysis of a road network articulated to the Qhapaq Ñan in the area located to the west of the administrative and religious center of Hatun Xauxa, and directly associated to the road that linked that site with Pachacamac in the central Peruvian coast.
