The Women in the Middle:
Inka Concepts Manifested in Farfan Burials


Until recently, archaeologists believed that the Inca Empire had relatively little influence on Peru's north coast. Six seasons of excavation and mapping at the site of Farfán in the north coast Jequetepeque Valley have revised these views. The site of Farfán revealed Inca artifacts and architectural features; however, Inca ideology was manifested most clearly in the burials. The females buried in the middle of the site's multi-tiered platform provide evidence of the interaction between Inca burial practices and their political and ideological concepts.
