A fellowship is requested to analyze archaeological and historical data for a book on the development of the Chanka ethnic group in the Andean highlands (Andahuaylas, Peru). The Chanka, one of the most important prehistoric cultures of South America, remain unstudied and the cultural processes that led to their development are not well understood. The first half of the book is based on a three-year archaeological field investigation of the Chanka heartland. The second half is based on archival work in Peru and Spain. The results are relevant to understanding the prehistory of Andean peoples, as well as to broader anthropological issues concerning the processes of state development and indigenous responses to conquests.
