Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The site of Galindo is seen as providing important information on the transition between the Moche to the Chimu traditions (only data on Chimu are topic indexed). The site of Galindo, itself, was only occupied for about two centuries, but it exhibits many of the innovative architectural and settlement features later seen at Chan Chan, such as adobe-walled enclosures in the center of the city (called [i]cercaduras[/i] at Galindo), smaller [i]huacas[/i] some of which are located within their own compounds,the appearance of elite residential complexes, corporate storage areas, rigid planning, restricted access to certain areas of the city, the [i]tablado[/i] (a U-shaped structure probably used by governmental administrators to control access), and residential areas separated by a massive adobe wall with a parallel "moat." Thus the site forms a transition from the more religiously oriented authority of the Moche to the more secular, centralized administration found with the Chimu as seen at Chan Chan.
