Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The author excavated at the site of Cerro la Virgen, a rural village of agglutinated rooms in the Moche Valley near the Chimu city of Chan Chan. The site is bisected by the coastal highway, and there are agricultural fields, a canal, and a cemetery nearby. Excavations took place on the road, and within some of the rooms, the looted cemetery, and a midden. Findings indicate a diet based on agricultural products, along with fish, shellfish, llama, and guinea pig. Numerous wood, stone, and bone tools were found in the rooms along with numerous storage pits and sunken jars. Several lines of evidence suggest this rural village was responsible for farming the nearby fields. The village is nucleated and the fields are formally laid out, suggesting they were part of a state-controlled agricultural enterprise.
