The Cuzco Valley was the spiritual and administrative centre of the Inca Empire and yet, Bauer argues, it has had little archaeological study. This well-illustrated and accessible book presents the results of Brian Bauer's Cuzco Valley Archaeological Project begun in 1994. It combines survey data and detailed descriptions of sites and monuments with a synthetic discussion of the settlement history of the Valley. Supported by numerous site plans and maps, reconstruction drawings and photographs of artefacts, sites and towns, the book discusses the social hierarchy of the region, the impact of humans on its environmennt, the first settlers (9500-2200 BC), the development of the Inca state, the Coricancha sanctuary, Incan mummies and Spanish sources. An appendix contains radiocarbon dates.
