Style and interregional interaction

Over the last decade, investigations into the Casma polity have revealed a coastal power that had previously been overlooked in discussions of the Middle Horizon and Late Intermediate Period. New data from the capital city of El Purgatorio indicate that this polity had far-reaching ties and interregional interactions with other contemporary polities, especially as demonstrated by stylistic variation in ceramics. The Casma polity incorporated some foreign influences into their material culture while continuing to assert its own cultural identity. This article presents a sample of both Casma-style ceramics and vessels which combine Casma attributes with elements from other styles and interprets these stylistic influences as evidence for interregional interaction. En los últimos diez años, investigaciones sobre la entidad política Casma revelan un poder costeño que habían sido ignorados en las discusiones del Horizonte Medio y del Período Intermedio Tardío. Nueva evidencia sobre la ciudad capital de El Purgatorio indica que este sistema de gobierno alegó vínculos de largo alcance y interacciones interregionales con otros sistemas políticos contemporáneos, primariamente demostrado por variación estilística de la cerámica. La cultura Casma incorporó influencias extranjeras en su cultura material sin dejar de afirmar su propia identidad cultural. Este trabajo presenta una muestra ambos de cerámica del estilo Casma y vasijas que combinan características Casma con elementos de otros estilos y, interpreta el significado de estas múltiples influencias culturales para la organización Casma políticos, así como la dinámica política más amplia de este período en la prehistoria peruana. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Ñawpa Pacha, Journal of Andean Archaeology Left Coast Press
