Abstract

RODRIGUEZ MORALES, Jorge et al. ELITE HOUSEHOLDS IN VIEJO SANGAYAICO: A LATE HORIZON AND EARLY COLONIAL SETTLEMENT IN HUANCAVELICA (PERU). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2020, vol.52, n.1, pp.3-22. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562020005000102.

Recent excavations carried out inside two household structures (E19 and E12) in Viejo Sangayaico B (Huancavelica, Peru) reveal how the inhabitants of both structures possessed an elite status associated with the Inca administration of the settlement during the Late Horizon. Likewise, differences in the quality and quantity of European goods consumed during the early decades of the colonial period reflect two different political strategies assumed by both groups in order to maintain their elite status in a context of deep and rapid changes.

Keywords : Central Andes; Huancavelica; Late Horizon Period; Early Colonial Period; elite households.
