Archaeologists with a range of specialties report findings from five seasons( 1982-86) of field work at Cerro Azul, a Late Intermediate (AD 1000-1470) and Late Horizon archaeological site in Peru's Ca[+ or -]ete Valley. They focus on the Kingdom of Huarco, which controlled the coast, rather than on the other tribe, which controlled the piedmont; both were conquered by the Inca abound 1470. After introductions to the kingdom and its ecosystems, the reports cover how Cerro Azul made use of trophic levels two, three, and four; the use of plants at Cerro Azul; the domestic animals, their skeletal remains, and their byproducts; and the interface of ecology and economy.
