9780813044330: Cusco: Urbanism and Archaeology in the Inka World (Ancient Cities of the New World)

“An outstanding study of the Incaic Cusco urban system that nicely integrates ethnohistorical and archaeological information using analytical concepts derived from urban planning.”—Jeff Parsons, University of Michigan

 

“Incorporating the most recent research into the Inka capital of Cusco and surrounding areas, Ian Farrington’s work is the most complete text on the political and economic structure of this ancient Andean city. He covers various aspects of Cusco’s urban life clearly and thoroughly, elucidating the complexities of the historical narrative and the archaeological evidence for social organization, religious activity, and daily practices.”—Tom D. Dillehay, Vanderbilt University

 

The Inka capital of Cusco is the oldest existing city in the Americas. Known as the “navel of the world” during the Inka Empire, it was a fascinating and complex urban landscape that grew and evolved over 3,000 years of continuous human habitation. Ian Farrington has spent decades investigating Cusco and its surroundings, gathering an impressive mass of ethnohistorical and archaeological data.


In this volume, Farrington explores building plans, architectural forms, and urban planning techniques utilized at Cusco. He examines how each element impacted the development of various sectors of the ancient city and demonstrates how the Inka organized urban space within the contexts of their cultural norms and practices. These findings include analysis of major ceremonies and their association with Inka urban architecture.


This valuable study conceptualizes Cusco as a system including the urban core, the heartland, and the imperial provinces from northwest Argentina to southern Colombia. Its unique approach and expansive findings reveal the sophisticated nature of Inka planning.

About the Author:

Ian Farrington, senior lecturer in archaeology at the Australian National University in Canberra, is the editor of Prehistoric Intensive Agriculture in the Tropics and coauthor of The Ancient Americas.

Review:

“No other book has focused so extensively on the oldest existing city in the Americas, and it fills a significant void in the study of pre-Hispanic urbanism. A magnificent accomplishment and model for other ancient urban studies. Essential.”—Choice 


“The first comprehensive scholarly text that uses archaeological data and historical descriptions to analyze the making, development, and urban life of Cuzco [sic] during the Inca period.”—Hispanic American Historical Review


“An urgently needed analysis of the city leading up to the Spanish conquest. . . . Those who study statecraft, urbanism, or New World cultures will benefit immensely from the extraordinary lengths to which Farrington has gone.”—Journal of Anthropological Research

Descripción University Press of Florida, United States, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. One person s lifelong research pursuit is brought to fruition here, in the first major publication on the planning and archaeology of the Inka capital of Cusco. No other book to date has focused so extensively on the oldest existing city in the Americas, the navel of the world according to the Inka Empire, a fascinating and complex urban landscape that grew and evolved over 3,000 years of continuous human habitation.Ian Farrington has spent decades investigating the city and its surroundings, gathering an impressive mass of ethnohistorical and archaeological data. In Cusco, he evaluates his own detailed field observations and measurements. Farrington also unearths and synthesises much unpublished and grey data, including archaeological reports and personal communications from fifty independent excavations performed over more than a century.Approaching this data with an urban planning methodology highly suited to this particular study, Farrington explores how the building plans of Cusco, the architectural forms employed, and the urban planning techniques impacted the development of various sectors of the ancient city. He also shows how the Inka organised urban space within the contexts of their cultural norms and practices, analysing major ceremonies and their association with urban architecture.This valuable study conceptualises urban Cusco as a system that includes the urban core, the heartland, and the imperial provinces from northwest Argentina to southern Colombia.
