Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Terada and Onuki report on their excavations and
findings from the site of Huacaloma in Peru. The site was occupied from the
Early Huacaloma through the Middle Cajamarca Periods. How they excavated and the
levels and stratigraphy they found are reported in great detail along with the
architecture and the artifacts. The report contains numerous drawings and
photographs of the stratigraphy, the excavation levels, the walls found within
the excavation levels, the ceramics, and the other artifacts. A detailed ceramic
typology is presented. Although, the architecture that was found during the
excavations was not given a function, most were probably part of either a public
or religious structure. Only the data that pertains to the Early Huacaloma, Late
Huacaloma, and Lazón Periods were indexed for OCM (Outline of Cultural
Materials ) subjects. The reader should use caution when examining the plates as
artifacts or architecture from several time periods may be shown on a
