Summary:
This collection of 22 documents, 23 in English and 1 in French, discuss the Coastal Andean Early Formative tradition. Although it ranges into southern Ecuador and northern Chile, this tradition is located principally along the desert coast of Peru from the Chira River basin in the far north to the Ica Valley in the south. It occurred from circa 3800-3000 BP. Readers will find there is some overlap in time periods, location, and material culture between the various Andean traditions as many authors discuss the changes from the Preceramic period and into the Early Horizon. Although each collection is indexed only for its own time period and location, readers are encouraged to examine the documents in the other collections for additional information. In particular the readeris directed to the following archaeological traditions: Coastal Andean Archaic, Coastal Andean Late Formative, Highland Andean Formative, Chavín, and Nazca. Several documents provide overviews of the tradition. Burger discusses the Initial Period in Peru from the Tumbes drainage in the far north to south of the Lurin Valley. Moseley provides an overview of the artifacts and sites of the Initial Period and the Early Horizon, mostly in Peru. Moseley introduces other documents from the same 1985 volume (Conklin; Patterson; Ravines; Samaniego et al.; Williams León) and also describes some of the monuments and cultural changes of the late Preceramic and Early Formative Periods. Lumbreras writes an overview of the Formative Period in Peru, including both the coast and the highlands, from the Jequetepeque to Ica valleys, briefly touching on the Early Formative or Initial Period. Many documents describe their authors' fieldwork in various coastal valleys. Ravines describes work in the Jequetepeque Valley. Fieldwork in the Moche Valley can be found in Pozorski and Pozorski, T. Pozorski, and Conklin. Pozorski and Pozorski describe work in both the Moche and Casma Valleys. Casma Valley fieldwork is found in Pozorski and Pozorski; Samaniego et al.; and S. Pozorski. Twenty kilometers south of the Casma Valley is the site of Las Haldas (Matsuzawa, 1978). Patterson worked in the Rimac Valley. The site of Cardal in the Lurin Valley is discussed by Burger and Salazar-Burger. Williams León examines the formal architecture of the central and north coast of Peru, concentrating on the U-shaped pyramid complex and the circular sunken plaza. Also focusing on architecture, Pozorski and Pozorski present a case where the monumental architecture was not a "huaca" or sacred place, and that archaeologists therefore should also consider secular functions for these structures. Pozorski and Pozorski also demonstrate how two separate networks of chiefdom polities developed along the coast and in the highlands. Haas contains the references for S. Pozorski and for Pozorskiand Pozorski.
