Architectural Contexts in Quilcapampa

Author(s): Luis Manuel Gonzalez La Rosa

Year: 2019


This is an abstract from the "Wari and the Far Peruvian South Coast: Final Results of Excavations in Quilcapampa" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

This paper will briefly discuss the architecture at Quilcapampa, with particular emphasis on possible patio groups at the site. We discuss these groups, the contexts found in the rooms, and the access patterns between spaces. The site appears to be arranged around a principal asymmetric plaza, with sections orientated differently related to that plaza. The paper suggests that the construction of Quilcapampa La Antigua was part of an ongoing negotiation between Wari settlers, local groups, and visitors.
