DIAZ, Luisa y VALLEJO, Francisco. CULTURAL VARIATIONS IN LIMA VALLEY DURING THE INKA PERIOD. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2004, vol.36, n.2, pp.295-302. ISSN 0717-7356. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562004000200004.
This study explores the profound cultural changes that occurred in the Lima area during the Inca conquest. We investigated one of the most important urban centers currently known as Armatambo, and the cemetery La Rinconada. We describe the cultural elements that characterize the señorio Ichma, the political unit that had governed the Lima region from the religious center of Pachacamac since before the Inca conquest. We differentiate the cultural material of the local Ichma group, and compare it with Inka cultural patterns. We focus upon the following attributions: architecture, extra-regional elements, ceramics, and funeral patterns
