Abstract: Most of this article is a review and report on the architecture and ceramics of Tiahuanaco and therefore is not indexed. However there is a small section on the Tiahuanaco and Huari connection. Stone masonry at Tiahuanaco is more impressive than the stonework at Huari. Both sites share stone lined underground chambers, which according to Arellano were most likely used for storage. This architectural similarity suggests to Arellano a closer connection than one of just religious or commercial exchanges. He reiterates the hypothesis that Tiahuanaco and Huari were northern and southern capitals of one empire.
