The Junin Surveys, 1975-1981


This is an abstract from the "The Legacies of Archaeologists in the Andes: Second Symposium, the Institutionalization and Internationalization of Andean Archaeology" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Inspired by previous systematic regional surveys in the Valley of Mexico, the Junin surveys were undertaken as a collaborative effort by the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos and the University of Michigan during several long field seasons between 1975-1981. This presentation highlights some of the major contributions of these surveys and specifies a number of key follow-up studies that should be undertaken in this still under-studied region in the Peruvian Sierra Central.
