This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Yunkaray, a site located located in Cusco Peru and located on the Maras Plain was occupied from approximately 1050 -1450 principally by the Ayarmaca group. This group lived on the fringe of the Incan political influence and faced differing modes of interaction. This investigation will utilize the analysis of paleoethnobotanical remains recovered from the site of Yunkaray in order to interpret and discuss the influence and interactions between the Ayarmaca group and the Incan sphere of influence through material culture and foodways.
