Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Lumbreras provides an overview of the Archaic period in Peru. At the time of his writing in 1974 little was known about the period along the coast and even less about the highlands, resulting in a very general treatment. There is a discussion of the domestication of various plants and animals, with animal domestication taking place in the highlands or in later time periods. During the early Archaic on the coast, subsistence depended on marine resources, and on the [i]lomas[/i] where winter fog provides moisture for plant growth, indicating some sort of seasonal transhumance (the vegetation then dies off during the dry summer). Other topics include: textile technology; house structures and community size; burials; hunting and fishing; cultivation of cotton, beans, cucurbits, chili pepper, tubers, and some fruits; food storage and preparation; and public architecture.
