East South Wall of Kalasasaya Platform, Tiwanaku


This project describes two important monuments of Tiwanaku: The Kalasasaya platform and the Putuni. These buildings span across the entire range of the occupation of the core of Tiwanaku. They were also excavated nearly in their entirety during the late 1950s and 60s and are, for the most part, underpublished. The vast majority of the raw data on their excavation is held by the author in the form of the field notes and drawings by the primary excavator, Cordero Miranda. The dataset contained here pertains to the East portion of the South Wall of the Kalasasaya platform.
