Abstract

CORNEJO, Luis  and  SAAVEDRA, Miguel. Inka political center in the southernmost tip of the tawantinsuyu (central Chile). Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.1, pp.133-157. ISSN 0718-6894.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68942018005000306.

These are the results of an archaeological research of the Inka site Palacio de la Real Aduana, located in the historic center of Santiago, Chile. By means of contextual analysis, there is an interpretation of the functionality of this settlement and its role as part of a strategy of Inka domination of the Aconcagua people, which lead to defining this settlement as the political center of the Austral end of the Tawantinsuyu. In addition, the study of the typological and iconographic characteristics of the pottery fragment suggests a possible ideological context of the political ceremonies developed in this place and the importance of the diaguita population in this process.

Keywords : Inka; Central Chile; Political Center; Diaguita; Kollasuyu.
