Late Prehispanic and Hispanic Ceramics in the Purén, Lumaco, and Liucura Valleys, La Araucania, Chile

edited by Tom D. Dillehay

Part of a larger research effort in the ethnography, ethnohistory, and archaeology of the Mapuche people in the central and southern part of Chile, this volume presents the cultural implications of the study of pottery dating from about AD 500 to 1750. The ceramics come from 376 surface-collected and excavated sites in the Purén and Lumaco Valley and 29 sites in the Liucura Valley of the Araucania region in south-central Chile. In addition to the analysis of chronology, designs, and vessel shapes, this study sheds new light on settlement distributions during the Early and Late Prehispanic periods, as well as during the Early Hispanic.
