Chapter 5 focuses on the excavations conducted in the main Oroncota Inka complex, also known as Inkarry within the frontier zone. After a brief discussion of Inka architectural styles, this chapter examines the different architectural areas like plazas, rectangular kallankas, and the associated variations in the cultural assemblages. Excavations in adjacent residential areas offered a unique opportunity to explore the residents’ ethnic affiliation and feasting practices. At a temporal scale, this chapter examines the evolution of this Inka center.
