Most of the cultures of the Late Horizon and some of the cultures of the Late Intermediate joined the Inca Empire by 1493, but the period ends in 1532 because that marks the fall of the Inca empire after the Spanish conquest. [1] Late Horizon ( 1476-1534 C.E.): This period spans from the emergence of the Inca empire, with the expansion of their dominion outside the Cuzco region until the arrival of the Europeans. [2]

Archaeologists working in the Andes traditionally divide the cultural development of the Peruvian civilizations into 12 periods, from the Preceramic period (ca 9500 BC) through the Late Horizon and into the Spanish conquest (1534 CE). [2]

C hronologically, archaeologists have divided prehistory in Peru into the Pre-Ceramic (13,000 BC-1800 BC), Initial Period (1800 BC - 800 BC), Early Horizon (800 BC - 750 AD), Middle Horizon (750 AD - 1000 AD), and Late Horizon (1000 AD -1476 AD). [3] My specific interests have shifted from the Late Horizon (Inca Period, 1400-1532 AD) earlier to the Middle Horizon (600-1000) in central Peru over the last few years. [3]

For my dissertation, I aim to 1) explore the nature, chronology, and variability of local mortuary practices in the middle Chincha Valley, Peru and 2) offer explanations for why local groups adopted different mortuary traditions during the Late Intermediate Period, or LIP (AD 1000-1476) and the Late Horizon (AD 1476 - 1532). [3] This talk addresses local mortuary practices in the mid-Chincha Valley, Peru dating from the Late Intermediate Period, or LIP (AD 1000 - 1476) to the Late Horizon (AD 1476 - 1532).

[3] We report two upper canines from two pre-Hispanic individuals dated to the Late Horizon Period from Cusco (Peru), each showing a conical perforation on its incisal surface. [3] Mummies used in the study included Ancient Egyptians from the predynastic era, ca 3,100 BCE to the end of the Roman era, 364 CE; Early intermediate to late horizon peoples from present day Peru, ca. 200-1500 CE; Ancestral Puebloans of the Archaic and Basketmaker II cultures of southwest America, ca 1500 BCE to 1500 CE; and the Unangan people from the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, ca. 1756 - 1930.

We analyzed individuals from three successive pre-Columbian cultures present at the Huaca Pucllana archaeological site in Lima, Peru: Lima (Early Intermediate Period, 500–700 AD), Wari (Middle Horizon, 800–1000 AD) and Ychsma (Late Intermediate Period, 1000–1450 AD).

The culture flourished from the Middle to Late Horizon periods (600 CE - 1532 CE). [3] The same terms (Early, Middle and Late Horizons) are sometimes used for the Mesoamerican chronology, though there the five stages defined by Gordon Willey and Philip Phillips in 1958 remain dominant, and the Formative stage, Classic stage and Post-Classic stage cover approximately similar periods. [3] Citation DOCUMENT The rank size analysis of the archaeological sites inhabited during the Late Intermediate and Late Horizon periods located in the Lower Lurin Valley of the Peruvian Central Coast presents a comparison of power politics and the possibility of a hierarchical organization among the different inhabitants of the respective sites. [4] During the Late Intermediate and Late Horizon Periods, adobe pyramids with ramps characterize the public architecture of sites in the valley. [4]

The Horizons, and their dominant cultures are: Early Horizon, Chavin ; Middle Horizon, Tiwanaku and Wari culture ; Late Horizon, Inca. [3] The names the several prehistoric populations called themselves are not known, and archaeologists have come to distinguish the various peoples and civilizations by descriptive terms--the Late Preceramic, the Initial (or Lower Formative) Period, the Early Horizon, the Early Intermediate Period, the Middle Horizon, the Late Intermediate Period, and the Late Horizon (also called the Upper Formative, or Inca, Period). [3] It is clear, however, that there are parallels in form to the present tupu from the Early Intermediate Period, Middle Horizon, Late Intermediate Period, and Late Horizon. [3]

The following eras of ancient Peru (1800 BC-AD 1534) have been defined by archaeologists using an alternation of so-called "periods" and "horizons" which end with the arrival of the Europeans. [2] Many of these were conquered by the Inca, in the Late Horizon, who briefly reigned over an empire from Ecuador to central Chile and northwestern Argentina, before the Spanish arrived in 1532. [5] The Wari, or Huari, was a civilization that flourished in the south-central Andes and coastal areas of what is modern-day Peru from about AD 500 to 1000 (Middle Horizon period). [3] "Middle Horizon" is a period in Peruvian prehistory (Figure 37.1), but cultural dynamics embraced an area much larger than Peru (Figure 37.2). [3]

KEY TOPICS The production and use of Loro ceramics in the Middle Horizon (c. 750-1000 CE) persisted during a period of cultural conflict as the highland Wari empire annexed the south coastal region of Peru. [3]

Rowe has divided the prehistory of Peru into a series of periods and horizons, basing his absolute dates on the sequence for the lea Valley on the south coast which is used as the master sequence for the country because of its completeness. [3] The horizons are times of relative cultural unification throughout peru, while the periods are times of local diversity without much long-range contacts taking place. [3] Jason Nesbitt specializes in the archaeology of the central Andes, with a focus on the Initial Period (1700-800 BC) and Early Horizon (ca. 800-300 BC) of Peru.

[3] The earliest known examples of tupus are from the cemetery at Tablada de Lur'n, dating to the end of the Early Horizon and the beginning of the Early Intermediate Period (ca. 300 B.C. -A.D. 300) on the Central Coast of Peru (Cárdenas 1999, 173; Castro de la Mata 2007). [3] In the periodization of pre-Columbian Peru and the Central Andes there are three Horizon periods, with two Intermediate periods between them. [3] In the Midddle Horizon, the great centers of Huari, Peru, and Tiwanaku, Bolivia, influenced many areas.

From new urban capitals in central highland Peru and Lake Titicaca Bolivia, the distinctive religious icons diagnostic of the Middle Horizon reached the northern Peruvian mountains and coast. [3] While the other chapters in the volume describe the changes that occurred during the Middle Horizon in places outside of the central highlands of Peru, this chapter describes what happened in a valley located relatively close to the Wari heartland. [3] Throughout their imperial reign, the Tiwanaku shared domination of the Middle Horizon with the Wari, whose culture rose and fell around the same time and was centered 500 miles north in the southern highlands of Peru. [3] Very little was known about Wari burial during the Middle Horizon (A.D. 500-1000), even though Wari was an imperial, early Bronze Age culture with a spectacular urban capital in highland Peru.

The interpretation of Wari as an imperial power in prehistoric Peru (e.g., Isbell 1991a, 1991b; Schreiber 1992, 2001) has come under closer scrutiny in the last few years by scholars who are reassessing data that have been gathered in areas assumed to be under Wari control and who are questioning the applicability of the imperial model that underlay previous explanations of the Middle Horizon.

[3] As the only place simultaneously occupied by the Middle Horizon (A.D. 600-1000) Andean states, the Tiwanaku and the Wari, the Moquegua Valley in southern Peru is of critical importance to understanding relations between the two states.

Using a model derived from McAnany's (1995) study of ancient Mayan ancestor veneration, this study evaluated the patterns of treatment of the dead, and corresponding sociopolitical implications, at the Middle Horizon (A.D. 500-1000) site of Conchopata, a secondary center of the Wari Empire located in Ayacucho, Peru. [3] I will also prove that the above-ground tombs at the site of La Tiza, Peru are a Middle Horizon development, as influenced by the highland Wari state conquering the Nasca drainage.

In the Early Horizon, the great highland center of Chavin appears to have spread its cult over much of Peru. [5]

In the Middle to Late Formative Periods (1200-500 BC), an impressive array of various kinds of large ceremonial architecture was built, despite the lack of an intensive farming system (for instance, involving large-scale irrigation and storage installations for surplus agricultural goods), at least in the northern highlands of Peru. [3] This modified Tiwanaku ideological inventory was then diffused through Wari political or prestige influence throughout central and northern Peru - even appearing in areas like the late and post-Moche north coast, which was never subjected to Wari conquest. [3] It was not until governmental reforms carried out in the late 1560s and under Viceroy Francisco Toledo, in the mid-1570s that some stability was established in Peru. [5]

These 11 sites span almost 1000 years (AD 600-1532), which allows for a comparison of the evidence for warfare before the Inca came to power (Middle Horizon AD 600-1000), during the time of Inca ascendency in the Late Intermediate Period (AD 1000-1400), and after the Inca came to power and expanded throughout the Cuzco region and beyond (Inca Imperial Period, AD 1400-1532). [3] There was scant evidence for major injuries during the Middle Horizon (2.8%, 1/36) and Late Intermediate Period (2.5%, 5/199), suggesting that warfare was not prevalent in the Cuzco region before and during the Inca rise to power. [3] The Casma--named for the valley to the south where their capital was located at El Purgatorio--were one of three polities vying for power along the Peruvian coast during the transitional period between the Middle Horizon (ca. AD 600-1000) and Late Intermediate Period (ca. AD 1000-1470). [3] Fung and Williams suggested that the Casma culture began in the second half of the Early Intermediate Period (approximately AD 200-600), persisted through the Middle Horizon (AD 600-1000), and extended into the first half of the Late Intermediate Period (AD 1000-1470), until they were conquered by the Chimú state. [3]

Whether or not twc- separate cultures were present in the valley in the Late Intermediate, or whether the makers of the Nepeha Black-on-White were the last ves- tiges of the local Middle Horizon peoples is unknown at this time. [3] All of the forts in the valley either belong to this period or to the Late Intermediate, and there is a strong probability that the large site of Siete Huacas may be Middle Horizon also. [3] The site was occupied from the late Middle Horizon 1B time to the first decades of period 2A, according to the chronology established by Dorothy Menzel, taking as reference the classic division of Horizons and Intermediate by John Rowe. [3] Stable carbon (δ 13 C) and nitrogen (δ 15 N) isotope ratios were measured on 28 archaeological camelid bone samples from the Middle Horizon sites of Cerro Baúl and Cerro Mejía, the Late Intermediate site of Yaral and the late pre-Hispanic to Colonial period site of Torata Alta. [3]

Burials containing pottery that dates to the late Huarpa period and early Middle Horizon Epoch 1 were cut into bedrock and situated below a meter of deposits with oversized urn fragments richly decorated in a new iconography of human heads. [3] Of note is Area 18, an excavation unit that exposed two 1x1 m storerooms with raised doorways and two superimposed stamped earth floors containing wood charcoal dating to the late Middle Horizon period. [3] The results of the excavations and the surface collection demonstrate that there were multiple stylistic influences in the ceramics at the Pan de Azúcar de Niv'n, including cross-cultural influence of the transition from the Middle Horizon (600-1000 CE) to the Late Intermediate Period (1000-1450 CE) in the Casma Valley. [3] The discovery of a large number of petroglyphs (Fig. 13), ancient walls (Fig. 14), roads and canals in the valley (Fig. 15), many of which date to the Middle Horizon and Late Intermediate Period. [3] My feeling is that the bulk of these sites belong to the Middle Horizon and the rest to the Late Intermediate Period. [3] The semblance between these artistic traditions, which was responsible for their initial classificatory muddling, is often mentioned anecdotally in works concerning the late Middle Horizon and Late Intermediate Periods of Andean prehistory during which the styles flourished. [3] At the end of the Middle Horizon a new stylistic tradition appears which is a transition between the Tiahuanaco materials and the local Late Intermediate ware. [3] Menzel has given the name Huari Norteho A to the ceramics of the Late Middle Horizon found on the north coast. [3]

Although the presence of Tiwanaku-style material culture throughout southern Peru, northern Chile, and western Bolivia is well documented, the nature of Tiwanaku influence during the Middle horizon (A.D. 500-1100) is variously attributed to imperial expansion or economic and/or religious relationships. [3] Archaeological and zooarchaeological data indicate that camelid pastoralism was a subsistence and economic mainstay of Middle Horizon and more recent cultures in the Osmore region of southern Peru. [3] The focus of my fieldwork is the Middle Horizon in southern Peru (AD 600 - 1000).

This chapter discusses how stone monuments at selected Late Archaic (3000-1800 B.C.) and Early Horizon (1200-200 B.C.) sites on the north central coast of Peru provide insights into social transformation processes across collective and autocratic societies. [7]

This sequence was initially created by archaeologists John H. Rowe and Edward Lanning and it was based on the ceramic style and radiocarbon dates from the Ica Valley of the South Coast of Peru, and later extended to the whole region.

Around the year 1000 the Chimu absorbed the Wari and Lambayeque or Sican cultures becoming the largest empire in Peru. [12] In their craft production they used semiprecious stones such as turquoise and emeralds, wood, sea shells, textiles and pottery and exported it to the different regions of ancient Peru. [12]

The term "Horizons" defines, in contrast, periods in which specific cultural traditions managed to unify the whole region. [2] These pre-Inca cultures belong to the Early Horizon Period dating back 3000 years. [12]

Like Tiwanaku Wari influence comprised direct rule in the central and northern highlands of Peru and indirect influence throughout the coastal regions. [3] Wari derived much of its symbolism of power from Tiwanaku and reinterpreted it for its own political purposes, establishing a sphere of influence similar to that of Tiwanaku in central and northern Peru. [3]

For many, Wari was an empire governed by people living at the site of Huari in the central highlands of Peru.

Publisher's Summary During the Middle Horizon (600-1000), the Wari civilization swept across the central Andes. [3]

The Middle Horizon (650–1100 AD) represents a major transitional period in the Central Andes, which is associated with the development and expansion of ancient Andean empires such as Wari and Tiwanaku. [3] The Wari and Tiwanaku represent culturally recognizable entities in the Central Andes during the Middle Horizon period (MH: 650–1100 AD), both with complex societies that are commonly associated with ecological changes, cultural transitions and accompanying population dynamics during this period. [3] This data offers critical insights into the processes of cultural exchange in the frontier between the Wari and Tiwanaku states of the Middle Horizon Period and the indigenous agrarian population. [3] Comparison of these clays with LA-ICP-MS analysis of ceramics from a Tiwanaku site and a Wari site demonstrates that although Tiwanaku and Wari colonists in Moquegua used locally available clays during the Middle Horizon, the clay sources exploited by potters from each state were different and derived from areas located within their respective middle and upper valley territories. [3] This seminar compares the distinct urban and expansive state phenomenae of the highland Wari and Tiwanaku cultures (AD 500-1000) with emphasis o n their formative origins and the ideological, agrarian, and technological foundations of Middle Horizon political development. [3] Wari and Tiwanaku are often considered the first Andean empires, during the Middle Horizon (cal. ad 650-1050). [3]

The weavers of the south-central Andean Tiwanaku state (Middle Horizon period A.D.500-1100) possessed knowledge of plant and animal fibers, weave techniques, dyes, and iconography which allowed them to produce a wide range of textiles, from the monochrome cloths of daily life to the vibrantly colored tapestries. [3] For Bolivians the key culture of the "middle horizon" period is that of Tiwanaku (Tiahuanaco in Spanish) supported by the lakeside economy of nearby Lake Titicaca. [3] Wari earthenware pot with painted design, 650-800 CE (Middle Horizon) : The Wari shared much in common aesthetically with the Tiwanaku. [3] Early Horizon sites are confined to the Middle Valley area, a fact that suggests that agricul ure was now the prominent subsistence pattern. [3] The highest count for quinoa (863) came from a single sample, no. 43 in Area 19, which was a ceremonial context from level V (Middle Horizon). [3]

The essays in this collection examine instead life in the Cotahuasi Valley, an area into which Wari influence expanded during the Middle Horizon period. [3] Below the colonial architecture of the city of Ayacucho lie the remains of the Huari period site of Conchopata, the only known Middle Horizon site in the valley, and where two spectacular caches of broken, oversized ceramic offerings have been found. [3] Ceramic fragments have been collected from the various sites that date from the Middle Horizon (A.D. 100-1000), Inca (A.D. 1470-1532), Colonial (A.D. 1532-1791), and contemporaneous periods. [3] Many archeologist still insist, however, that the Incas reproduced and updated many buildings, especially those in the Middle Horizon period 600 to 1000 A.D. However, many other studies have shown that the sites with the outstanding "perfect fit" architecture was developed before that time. [3] Scope/content "Five hundred years before the Inca, the Middle Horizon period (A.D. 600-1000) was a time of sweeping cultural change in the Andes. [3] The period from the end of the 6 th century AD until AD 1000 is a time of major change termed the Middle Horizon after the spread of Tiwanaku-derived iconography through much of the Andes. [3] The Huari site was first settled in the Huarpa phase, which dates to the Early Intermediate Period (c. 200 bc - ad 600); but the expansion of the site to its impressive urban dimensions corresponds with the Tiwanaku-influenced Huari phase proper of the Middle Horizon, the time at which the leaders of Huari embarked on a course of imperial expansion. [3] AMS dates show that Uraca was used for the burial of individuals who lived during the Early Intermediate Period ("EIP", ca 200 BC - 600 AD), and during the emergence and first fifty years of the Andean Middle Horizon (600 - 1000 AD). [3]

This interpretation contradicts the radiocarbon dates placing the occupation of the site during the Middle Horizon (ca. AD 600-1000), before the Chimú expansion, which did not begin until at least AD 1200. [3] The first dates to the terminal Middle Horizon (Terminal MH) (AD 950-1200), the centuries immediately following the collapse of the Tiwanaku state. [3] The Middle Horizon (ad 650-1000) saw the spread of the Wari state from the central sierra and the Tiwanaku state from the Lake Titicaca region. [3] Since the frequency of haplogroup B2b remains constant during the Wari and Ychsma periods, we suggest that the increase in frequency of haplogroups C1b and B2b during the Middle Horizon might be linked to gene flow from the Andean region. [3] We demonstrate that although funerary practices were not radically different between the two occupations, concepts of non-normative burial differed between the terminal Middle Horizon and the LIP. Situating my data in the wider literature on Tumilaca la Chimba and the region, we conclude that the changes in non-normative burial are explained by the changing socio-political context of this tumultuous period in Andean pre-history. [3] These rituals likely helped villagers in the Cotahuasi Valley adjust to the sweeping societal changes that were occurring in the region during the Middle Horizon, a difficult period of population growth due to competition for arable land resources, agricultural intensification, and incipient social stratification (Jennings and Álvarez 2015b; Tung 2012). [3] I believe that many of the defensive walls that stretch across the valley belong to the Middle Horizon; many of these emanate from sites that contain pottery of the period. [3] In other sites this type of pottery is usually associated with the Middle Horizon, and this site has tentatively been assigned to that period. [3] A total of 35 sites of definite Middle Horizon associations plus 14 probable sites gives a total of 49 for this period or almost one half of the total surveyed during 1967. [3] Throughout the Middle Horizon, Ayacucho Basin ceramic production appears to have been concentrated at Conchopata and perhaps Wari rather than evenly dispersed among sites in the area.In addition to intensification of ceramic production, Wari influence included the construction of planned architecture and changes in ceremonial practices. [3] Beginning around A.D. 600, the beginning of the Andean Middle Horizon, this form of production appears to have co-existed alongside intensified, state-controlled production of ceremonial and quotidian ceramics under the influence of the expanding Wari Empire. [3]

The Moche and Recuay cultures dominated the Early Intermediate Period, followed by strong Wari influences during the Middle Horizon. [3] In the Central-Meridional Andes, during the Middle Horizon (AD 500-900), a specialized group of Wari musicians had a specific and important social function within the framework of the religious practices of the elite, not only in rituals of their own society but also in those of other cultures. [3] Llamas and alpacas (camelids) were a subsistence and economic mainstay of Middle Horizon (AD 600-1000) and more recent cultures in the Peruvian Andes. [3]

Peruvian prehistory is divided into Horizons, when many people throughout the land shared common practices, and Periods when more regional cultures were common. [5]

Both Pucará and Tiwanaku were early forms of what became known as the Middle Horizon, an expansion of multiple-valley political rule that had two centres: one in the southern Altiplano, the other centred on Huari (Wari), near the modern Peruvian city of Ayacucho. [3] The Middle Horizon: Tiwanaku and Wari The Inca had antecedents in Middle Horizon times (c. [3] The Middle Horizon in central Andean prehistory was dominated by two large, expansive states: Wari, in the central Andes, and Tiwanaku, in the south-central Andes. [3] The Wari and Tiwanaku expansions triggered distinct cultural shifts across a vast area in the Central Andes during the Middle Horizon. [3] The Wari were contemporary with those other great Middle Horizon (c. 600 - 1000 CE) cultures centred at Tiwanaku and Pukara. [3] Isbell WH.

What is the best archaeological understanding of the great spread of Wari ceramic styles, architectural forms, mortuary practices, and luxury objects during the central Andean Middle Horizon? 1 Beyond Wari Walls brings together a collection of papers, each one examining the archaeological record of a lower-order place. [3] In this chapter, we describe the four local Middle Horizon styles found at Tenahaha and then compare these styles to Wari styles from Ayacucho and elsewhere. [3] The pre-Middle Horizon and Middle Horizon contexts that I excavated at Ak’awillay provide a unique opportunity to evaluate change through time and assess Wari impact and local responses to Wari expansion in the region. [3] The consequences of Wari contact in the Nasca region during the Middle Horizon: archaeological, skeletal, and isotopic evidence. [3] Wari civilization swept across the central Andes during the Middle Horizon (AD 600-1000). [3] Culinary and agricultural practices in the Central Andes changed from the Formative Period (1800 BC-AD 200) into the Middle Horizon (AD 600-1050) (Nash 2012). [3]

During the Middle Horizon ( ad 600-1000) it continued as a major centre and place of pilgrimage and was probably the principal establishment of the Huari Empire on the coast. [3] Huari was probably the centre of a militaristic empire that dominated much of the Peruvian highlands and coast during the earlier part of the Middle Horizon. [3] There were few new advances in techniques, and perhaps the most notable was the spread of bronze to the Peruvian coast from northwest Argentina and Bolivia, where tin ore was found and where the manufacture of bronze appears to have originated during the Middle Horizon. [3]

Middle Horizon sites are found throughout the Nepefia Valley, and many of these are large urban centers covering a square mile in some instances. [3] Although the Supe Valley marks the northern limits of the Central Coast, in the Middle Horizon the site of Chimu Capac used North Coast techniques with pottery designs executed by press-molding rather than painting. [3] According to Dorothy Menzel's analysis of the pottery, most of the sites fall into the second half of the Middle Horizon, Mid- dle Horizon III and IV. By this time the power of Huari and Pacha- camac had all but disappeared, and local autonomy was the rule. [3] The Cajamarca Basin is the site of a pottery style (called cursive) that was entirely independent of known outside influences and that spanned at least the Early Intermediate Period and the Middle Horizon. [3] My early survey had suggested that the site was constructed by the Moche Culture in the Early Intermediate Period and continued into the Middle Horizon. [3] Early Intermediate Period and Middle Horizon funerary practices in Ayacucho: a view from the site of Ñawinpukyo. [3]

Uraca's artifacts are typical of Middle Horizon sites (around 600 1100 AD) in coastal Arequipa. [3] During the Middle Horizon (AD 750-1000) the Wari Empire established at least three colonies (Pacheco, Pataraya, and Inkawasi) in the Nasca Valley and its tributaries. [3] Tenahaha was one of the sites occupied during the Middle Horizon in the Cotahuasi Valley (UTM 728000 E/8320000 N, Zone 18, Provisional South American Datum 1956, 2,600-2,650 MASL). [3] Those that are present suggest that the site probably dates to Middle Horizon times. [3] Many of the Moche murals at the site were covered by later construction, either in the Early Intermediate or in the Middle Horizon. [3] This elucidates the complex and highly variable relationships between the Tiwanaku heartland and peripheral sites during the Middle horizon. [3] This chapter analyzes the patterns of plant use at Middle Horizon sites in the Andes. [3] Abstract There has been little discussion on the macrobotanical remains from Andean Middle Horizon sites. [3] Ritual and plant use at Conchopata- an Andean Middle Horizon site. [3] The Middle Horizon (AD 600-1000) was a significant turning point in Andean prehistory. [3] Middle Horizon (AD 500-1000) mythohistory, urbanism, state origins, art, technology, agriculture, colonization, trade, and conquest are explored using ethnohistory and archaeological sources. [3] Being a "state" or an "empire" is not completely necessary for these types of political processes to occur, and for me, gaining a better understanding of the "nature" of complex polities during the Middle Horizon is a secondary question that can be approached through answering these questions of interaction. [3] The data for the Norte Chico do not fit expectations of social or political control by the Wari during the Middle Horizon (MH). [3] Much of the debate over the last four decades on the nature of and the interaction between the societies of the Central Coast and Wari during the Middle Horizon has been polarized by two positions that could be characterized as the Ayacucho-based hegemonic or imperialist view and the locally based mercantile model.

[3] Publisher's Summary During the Middle Horizon (600-1000), the Wari civilization swept across the central Andes. [3] Tiwanaku influence in the South Central Andes: Strontium isotope analysis and middle horizon migration. [3] The Middle Horizon was a period of surging population, social stratification, and foreign influence in Cotahuasi (Jennings 2015a), and Tenahaha may have served as a neutral gathering place to socialize during a tense period of change (Jennings 2015b).

[3] Their primary period, the Middle Horizon, corresponds to the transition between two major north coast polities: the Moche and the Chimú. [3] The north coast must have been experiencing more frequent periods of rain in the Middle Horizon than at present. [3] Much less is known about the Middle Horizon materials on the north coast than for the central and southern parts of the country. [3] Conchopata is undoubtedly the major center that dominated the cultural landscape in the southern Ayacucho Valley during the Middle Horizon. [3] Since this style has not been defined, and because the Middle Horizon chronology for this area is so poorly known, I am continuing to use the older terminology. 32. waters needed for irrigation by all those in the valley, and con- flicts over these rights is a definite possibility. [3] The Nepefia Valley falls well within the boundaries of the Kingdom of Chimor, and we may hypothesize that many of the defensive works in the valley were constructed by the remnant peoples of the Middle Horizon who attempted to prevent 35. the newcomers from invading the area. [3] Middle Horizon burials are frequent, and their location is normally on the borders of the valley, particularly in sandy areas near the foot of the mountains. [3] His areas of interest are: Paleolithic Archaeology, Great Plains Archaeology, Paleoethnobotany, and Peruvian Formative and Middle Horizon Archaeology. [3]

This study presents new information on the ceramic styles of the Cuzco region during the Early Intermediate period and the Middle Horizon. [3] In general two main styles are present: the classic "Coast Tiahuanaco", or Huari Norteho A style with standard Middle Horizon forms and motifs (Plate 15). [3] The known northern limit of Middle Horizon Tiahuanaco is Azangaro, while the southern limit of Huari is Sicuani, with Esguina lying to the southwest of Sicuani.

While some of these roads may have been built first during the Middle Horizon and even earlier, it was during Inca times that the roads were maintained and unified into a single political and economic system. [3] Pachacamac, on the central coast, which survived until Inca times as a great temple and oracle, was established as a ceremonial centre by the beginning of the Middle Horizon. [3]
