GIS Analysis of Domestic Structures at the Late Moche Site of Galindo

Author(s): Brendon Murray; Patrick Mullins

Year: 2019


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

The site of Galindo was a major center of the Southern Moche Region during the Late Moche Period (600–900 A.D.) During this period, the Moche Valley center appears to have undergone socio-political change, resulting in a new monumental style. In order to investigate possible changes in the domestic sectors, a series of spatial analyses were completed on the domestic sectors of the site using a three-dimensional aerial drone map. By looking at both the domestic and monumental architecture, it is possible to have a more complete understanding of how the marked transitions in monumental architecture may have been mirrored by domestic organization during the Middle Horizon of the Moche Valley.
