Abstract

SCHIAPPACASSE F., Virgilio  and  NIEMEYER F., Hans. PROVINCIAL INCA CEREMONIAL: THE SAGURA SETTLEMENT (CAMARONES BASIN). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2002, vol.34, n.1, pp.53-84. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562002000100004.

We describe an inca site located in the sierra of Camarones basin in northern Chile. We analyze the architectonic features and the cultural remains of the different sectors that compound the site. We argue that the site had a ceremonial function and that it was administered by altiplano mitimaes , with the help of the local population. Saguara and the nearby site of Pachica, provide a better understanding of the nature of the inca presence in the sierra of the Collasuyu periphery

Keywords : South Central Andes; Camarones valley; provincial inca; settlement archaeology; ceremonial site.
