Abstract

This monograph collates results of the first few years of archaeological research at Khonkho Wankane, a major Formative site in the southern Lake Titicaca basin of Bolivia.  The volume includes chapters summarizing a history of archaeological research at Khonkho, shifting settlement patterns around the site, results of geophysical survey, excavations in monumental, residential, and mortuary contexts, and an analysis of the site’s storied monoliths.  The volume collectively demonstrates that Khonkho Wankanke was one of the most important Late Formative ritual and political centers in the Lake Titicaca basin during the Late Formative generations of the region’s history.

Khonkho Wankane: Archaeological Investigations in Jesus de Machaca, Bolivia, features contributions by many excellent Bolivian and North American archaeologists: Carlos Lémuz Aguirre, Deborah Blom, Christopher Dayton, Jake  Fox, Arik Ohnstad, José Luís Paz Soria, Adolfo Pérez Arias, Maribel Pérez Arias, Dennise Rodas Sanjinéz, Andrew Roddick, Scott Smith, Benjamin Vining, and Patrick Ryan Williams.
