Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Lumbreras provides an overview of the various cultures and ceramic styles found during the Formative Period (mainly discussing Peru). Included in his discussions of the various cultures are descriptions of ceramics, architecture (dwellings and temples), settlement patterns, other arts and crafts (especially sculptures), burial practices, and diet (including what types of plants were cultivated).
