Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In order to begin to provide an empirical basis for addressing the historical veracity of the legend of Naymlap, this document undertakes a diachronic examination of the archeological evidence from the Lambayeque area, particularly that pertaining to the Moche and Chimu periods (circa AD 550-1350). The region's hydrological and political systems are compared and contrasted with those of the southern valleys of the North Coast region. The Sican Archaeological Project spanned eleven field seasons, with much work done at the residential/craft production site of Huaca del Pueblo Batan Grande. Numerous radiocarbon dates from that site and others from the region are discussed, as well as the potential for relative dating of adobes and murals from monumental architecture. Also considered are ceramics, ceramic iconographies, Huari influence on iconography, settlement patterns, architecture, changes in adobe bricks including the marks on them, changes in trade (especially [i]Spondylus[/i] shells and a kind of copper currency), and the start of large-scale copper alloy production.
