Description

This book is a detailed study of the enormous
pre-Columbian ruin
Kuelap in the Department of Amazonas, Peru. The text
provides a
description of this area of northeastern Peru and a
narrative
historiography of the ruin.
From the time of Kuelap s introduction to the
modern world in
1843, the Kuelap has always been considered a
fortress. This study
is a reconsideration of this militaristic framing.
The following chapters also critique the belligerent stereotype
assigned to the
northern Andean highlands for the Late Intermediate
Period (1,000
to 1,400 AD). The text also explores the historical
digression,
concerning Chachapoya studies, caused by this mindset.
Theories are then presented which will offer a
plausible scenario
for the construction and occupation of Kuelap. Were
the enormous
walls erected to imitate the ubiquitous form in the
region, the cliff
face? A new iconography for the Chachapoya
architectural frieze
work is also considered. This system positions these
geometric
friezes as aspects of the human head: eyes, ears and
nose. Closing
remarks provide suggestions for continued
investigations regarding
the ruin.
