Social Memory and the Development of Monumental Architecture in the Southern Jequetepeque Valley, Peru
Numerous theoretical concepts associated with social memory have been employed by archaeologists working throughout the world as a means of explaining continuities and discontinuities in the archaeological record. These social memory-based approaches are varied and include specific avenues of inquiry such as how social memories were actively manipulated for political gain; the role played by monumental architecture in the coalescing of shared memories; and the interrelationship between social memories and architectural forms. Focusing primarily upon monumental architecture, this paper will examine the pivotal role played by social memory in the formation of the dynamic archaeological landscape located in the southern Jequetepeque Valley, Peru.
