Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Using archaeological survey data collected from the Piura and Chira valleys and along the far north coast of Peru, cultural phases from the Initial Period up to the Inca are examined (only data pertaining to the Chimu Tradition are topic indexed). This distinctive culture area from the Sechura Desert to the Ecuadoran border contains evidence of cultural exchange along the coast, and the presence of the Chimu. Survey data include settlement patterns, adobe brick shapes, huacas, surface ceramic collections, and radiocarbon dates. Trade, and a melding of ideas between Ecuador and Peru can be traced to the Preceramic Period, and during the Moche to Chimu traditions is apparent in the presence of paddle-marked and burnished blackware pottery, adobe shapes, walled compounds, fortresses, copper smelting, and Spondylus shell. However, the people of the area never spoke Yunga, the language of the Chimu, and the architecture of Piura Phase 3 sites is unlike the administrative centers or ciudadelas found at Chan Chan or at Manchan.
