CASTILLO LUJAN, Feren. Typology and seriation of ceramics from the chimú cemetery of huaca de la luna, Peru. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.2, pp.27-58. ISSN 0718-6894.

This article presents the results of studies on ritual ceramics obtained from the first chimu cemetery excavated entirely inside the Huaca de la Luna, Moche valley (Peru). It includes a typology of complete shapes of vessels, figurines, ornaments and instruments of production. In addition, these elements have been seriated according to the four known phases (Early, Middle and Late Chimú, and Chimú-Inca). Finally, the radiocarbon dating of two tombs from the first phase, the funeral pattern, and the morphological and iconographic analysis of the vessels open new perspectives on the beginnings of the chimu society.

Keywords : Chimu; typology; seriation; ceramics; Huaca de la Luna.
