Abstract

This collection of essays examines a wide range of topics from a broad sample of prehispanic Andean societies. Each essay reflects the reality of a state of knowledge in archaeological research, as well as greater goals in anthropology and art history. All share a concern with the materialization of culture, and what questions can and must be asked of the material remains available for study. Each essay represents another step in increasing understandings of the Andean past, supporting one another in an ever expanding dialogue of knowledge production. Each reader will likely focus on different issues discussed by the essays, perceiving disparate questions that may now be addressed more cogently.
