Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Excavations at the sites of Chotuna and Chornancap in the Lambayeque Valley provide evidence for a sequence of occupation consistent with the traditional history of the Naymlap dynasty. There are illustrations of Early through Late Phase ceramics, maps of the architecture, and an adobe brick seriation. The overall emphasis is on the Early to Middle Phase occupations, AD 750-1370. No Moche diagnostic ceramics were found at Chotuna, but there was a clear break in occupation around AD 1100, when a major El Niño event occurred. Although the evidence does not prove the existence of Naymlap and his dynasty, certain events—such as the founding of Chotuna and a flood creating a disruption in the occupation—match expectations based on traditional history.
