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 sites of Huacaloma and Layzón in Peru. The Huacaloma
site was occupied from the Early Huacaloma through the Middle Cajamarca Periods
and the Layzoón site was mostly occupied from the Late Huacaloma through
the Layzón Periods. How they excavated and the levels and the
stratigraphy they found are reported in great detail along with the architecture
and the artifacts. Also described are the human remains found and the pollen and
faunal remains collected. The report contains numerous drawings and photographs
of the excavation levels, the constructions found within the excavation levels
such as walls, platforms, and staircases, the ceramics, and the other artifacts.
Most of the architecture described was part of a temple mound or platform
although the authors do not refer to it as such until the conclusions. Only the
data that pertains to the Early Huacaloma, Late Huacaloma, and Layzón
Periods (or 3500 B.P. to 2200 B.P.) were indexed for OCM (Outline of Cultural
Materials ) subjects.
