The End Is in Sight: Preliminary Findings for Terminal Middle Horizon Occupation at Huari
Author(s): Brittany Fullen
This is an abstract from the "Seeing Wari through the Lens of the Everyday: Results from the Patipampa Sector of Huari" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Continuing excavations at the domestic sector of Huari in 2018 (re)opened several structures whose occupation spanned the end of the Middle Horizon. The collapse of the Wari empire is not well understood, and the perspective these quotidian examples provide will help us continue to untangle what happened to the Wari. This presentation explores the similarities and differences found not only with the Patipampa sector occupation, but with other sectors of Huari, and more broadly with other sites within the Wari realm at the beginnings of a pivotal moment of change. The preliminary analysis will focus on room closure/abandonment, mortuary remains, depositional practices, and ceramic chronology to elucidate indicators of Wari decline, and its effects upon inhabitants both within the capital city, as well as those throughout the heartland and hinterland.
