Late colonial Andean revolts and rebellions: A view from the archaeology of labor and identity
Author(s): Di Hu
Historians of the late colonial Andes focus on this time period as a watershed for innovations in identity, resistance, and economics that famously culminated in the great Andean rebellions of the 1780s. Strangely, there has been little investigation of the role that material culture played in such transitions. This paper will briefly review some of the archaeological and historical evidence from an important textile workshop, Pomacocha, in highland Peru. Such evidence suggests that changes in the experience of materiality and social cohesion helped paved the way for revolt.
