The Regeneration of Complexity

Beyond the Nasca Lines

The reestablishment of complex societies after a period of abandonment in Nasca is the focus of this chapter. This time period called the Late Intermediate Period is explored in several areas that may have interacted with Nasca. Archaeological evidence is presented for the Nasca region and La Tiza. In addition, there is a brief discussion of the Late Horizon when the Inca conquered the region. Society was dramatically different in the Late Intermediate Period, with new types of political, economic, and religious organization. Power and leadership appear to have been more diffused and segmented. The absence of large ceremonial centers or other public gathering spaces, as well as lack of distinct and elaborate iconography, suggest religion was not the integrating factor that it was in previous times. These changes are documented in detail in this chapter, as is the hypothesis that most people who settled the region in this period were not related to those who lived here before.
