Imperial Remodeling: Hatuncancha and Later Inca Construction
This is an abstract from the "How Did the Inca Construct Cuzco?" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Though generations of scholars have mapped nearly all the standing architecture of the imperial and colonial city of Cusco, nevertheless, the site remains caught in the hypothetical moment of its apogee prior to its destruction during the Great Inca Revolt. A recent intensive survey of the central portion of the city provides nuanced data that permits a diachronic perspective on its changing form. With these results, we proposed a transformation of the central portion of the city as the result of dynastic changes and changing fortunes of an expansive empire.
