Chapter 7 presents the results of my excavations in the fortification of Cuzcotuyo in the Khosko Toro mountains, a site described in the ethnohistoric narratives as one of the last defense bastions against the intruding Guaraní-Chiriguanos. The goal is to discern the nature and scale of the different activities conducted at the fortification, in light of the cultural materials and associated features. This section also offers a discussion of the evolution of a frontier fortification, and the shifting strategies of alliance and conflict with outer groups.

Keywords:   Cuzcotuyo, Khosko Toro, Guaraní-Chiriguanos, Frontier fortification
