Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This document is an examination of the hypothesis that Chimu U-shaped rooms were administrative offices or checkpoints controlling access to storage rooms; a mark of authority and supervision associated with Chimu state-sponsored projects. Graph theory and locational geography models are proposed for archaeological assessment of access patterns in architecture. Analysis of several [i]ciudadelas[/i] at Chan Chan using the models indicates that U-shaped rooms were not significantly associated with storerooms within the main compounds, so archaeologists will need develop other hypotheses.
