Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Chimu expansion is viewed in two parts: the first beginning around AD 1200; the second starting about 1300 with the incorporation of the Casma Valley and ending after the takeover of the Lambayeque Valley around 1400. The preexisting polities of Casma in the south and Sicán in the north are briefly described. How much political control was exerted over the added territory changed over time, and the total area conquered was not equivalent to the area actually occupied as evidenced by the presence of Chimu state architecture and ceramics. There is evidence for a melding of architectural styles at Manchan, and ethnohistoric sources state that local lords were absorbed into the Chimu state. Chimu administrative centers are defined and ranked according to architectural and spatial features, indicating four administrative orders above the village level, with functional variability in structures including controlling access to storerooms, supplying food and [i]chicha[/i] (maize beer) to patio areas, managing production of high status items, and overseeing canal construction and corvée labor.
