The Development of Complexity

(p.63) 5 Farmers in the Desert
Beyond the Nasca Lines

Christina A. Conlee

University Press of Florida

This chapter documents the first permanent settlement at La Tiza, which began in the later part of the Early Horizon (300 B.C.) when farmers established a village at the location. There is a discussion of the region as a whole, followed by a description of the units excavated from this time period. The chapter investigates various aspects of domestic life at the site as well as evidence for social differentiation and new religious practices. This was a period of dramatic population growth, and there is evidence for migration into Nasca at this time. The foundations were laid for the development of the civilization that was established in the subsequent period.

Keywords:   Early Horizon, farmers, migration, social differentiation
