Julio C. Tello and the Institute of Andean Research: A Brief Overview by Richard E. Daggett

Cajamarca, Peru

The theme of this first workshop was how to combine archaeological and ethnohistoric data and perspectives.   Subsidiary themes were:  Myths and cosmology, ethnicity and identity, and the frontiers of the empire. LA ARQUEOLOGIA Y LA ETNOHISTORIA: UN ENCUENTRO ANDINO was the first volume to result from the IARs series of workshops.

The volume includes papers by Segundo Moreno from Ecuador, Lorenzo Huertas from Peru,  Sonia Alconini from Bolivia, Jorge Hidalgo and Calogero Santoro from Chile and Ana Maria Lorand and Veronica Williams from Argentina; Maria Rostworowski provided a summary commentary.  Discussions following each paper were also transcribed and included in the publication.
