Y la tradición continúa: la alfarería de la época Inka en el Valle de Ayacucho, Perú
Chanka, Inka empire, ceramics, Ayacucho
In this paper, I evaluate the stylistic classification of the so called "Chanka" pottery. On the basis of the most recent findings I argue that the Chanka pottery, in particular Arqalla and Aya Orqo types, is not an exclusive pre-Inka manifestation. The new evidence from Qaqas strongly suggests that the local pottery tradition continued being manufactured during Inka times. The Inka state, therefore, seems not to have altered much the local tradition and that local populations seem to have continued inhabiting the Ayacucho Valley, at least in its northern end.
