Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Moseley gives a brief overview of the artifacts and sites of the Initial Period and the Early Horizon, mostly in Peru. He particularly discusses irrigation agriculture, monumental architecture such as U-shaped temples, and the influence several highland centers had (Chiripa, Chavin de Huantar, Pukara). Moseley also discusses the theory that the Lanzon stela may have been considered a talking god or oracle and that Chavin was the center of a religious cult that helped spread secondary oracles. Only data pertaining to the Andean highlands was indexed for OCM (Outline of Cultural Materials) codes.
