Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Anders examines Azangaro architecture for insights into Huari administrative character and organization. Azangaro is a planned Huari installation in the Huanta Valley, 15 km northwest of Huari. The Huanta Valley is considered the breadbasket of the Ayachuco Basin and an important crossroads. Anders identifies two architectural styles, regular and irregular. The regular, or planned, installation covers 7.8 hectares and is divided into three sections. The North Sector is typically Huari with long, narrow rooms, framing open courtyards. The Central Sector contains forty rows of narrow, conjoined rooms with corridors in between, which Anders infers are quarters for MIT'A laborers. The South Sector has regular structures similar to those in the North Sector and irregular structures. The irregular structures include two layouts: multiple rooms facing a patio (Complex III) and single room structures (Complexes I and II), which Anders believes are the residences of two local lords. She concludes that Azangaro is a calendrical/ceremonial center built to legitimize state authority and reaffirm the reciprocal relationship between the center and region.
