Experience on the frontier : a Tiwanaku colony's shifts over time


This thesis investigates the relationships between Tiwanaku associated populations living in a colonial context in the Moquegua Valley, Peru through evidence of daily practices. It also examines the relationship of this colonial group to its homeland in the altiplano region and changes over time. The Tiwanaku polity dates from AD 500- 1100, with the Moquegua Valley Tiwanaku associated population occupying the valley from around AD 600-1100. This thesis attempts to demonstrate the value of investigation of relationships within colonies from a domestic perspective and what this information can infer about a colony's relations with the homeland
