Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The focus is on the Early Intermediate Period in the Chicama, Moche, and Virú valleys, with a discussion of some of the political continuities and discontinuities between the Moche and Chimu traditions, especially those that had their roots in Moche. Both were centralized expansionist states with class divisions. They were ruled by elites, with the chief executive segregated from most of the people. Chimu is distinguished by split inheritance among royalty, a relatively secularized bureaucracy, and a redistributive state economy.
