This chapter describes the results of research at the site of Cerro la Cruz and presents the most important interpretations derived from this data, answering several central questions regarding life on the frontier, and examining the archaeological evidence for the dynamic movements of frontiers and border zones over time. The function and meaning of the site's compounds are discussed, including the evidence for an internal tripartite division of space. The perimeter walls and other non-compound architectural features are also examined.

Keywords:   Casma, Cerro la Cruz, excavations, ceramics, textiles, architecture, skeletal remains
