Resumen

PAVLOVIC, Daniel; TRONCOSO, Andrés; SANCHEZ, Rodrigo  y  PASCUAL, Daniel. A TIGER IN THE VALLEY: ROADS, ARCHITECTURE AND INCA RITUALITY IN THE UPPER COURSE OF ACONCAGUA VALLEY . Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.4, pp.551-569. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562012000400002.

This paper presents the results of research conducted at the Inca site of El Tigre, situated in the upper basin of the river Aconcagua, in the northern area of Central Chile. Its monumental architecture and material context and analysis of its relationship with other Inca remains in nearby areas all suggest a multipurpose character for the site. This is found primarily in its association with the Inca road network and evidence of ritual expressions originating in Cuzco implanted in the area during the Late Period (1.4001.542 BC). These antecedents are discussed in relation to the mechanisms held by the presence of Tawantinsuyu in the area.

Palabras clave : Inca road; architecture; rituals; Tawantinsuyu; Aconcagua valley.
