This multidisciplinary--indeed, transdisciplinary--combination of archaeological, historical, and ethnographic research reveals how the Andean people of southern Peru's Colca Valley experienced and responded to successive waves of colonial rule by the Inka and Spanish empires from the fifteenth through seventeenth centuries.

While most research splits the prehispanic and post-conquest eras into separate domains of study, Steven Wernke's perspective explicitly combines archaeological and documentary sources to bridge the Spanish conquest of the Andes. He integrates GIS-based spatial analyses of documentary sources with archaeological survey and the only excavations of an early Spanish doctrinal settlement in the highland Andes to present a local perspective on how new communities and landscapes emerged as part of a continuous process of adapting to consecutive imperial occupations. Wernke's findings show how Spanish ideals of urban order penetrated this rural provincial setting as early as the first generation after the conquest, as well as the ways the integration of Spanish ideals depended on their resonance with prehispanic Andean precedents.

Through integration of empirical research and social theory, this volume contributes to current debates on colonial and postcolonial theory, historical anthropology, and the growing field of colonial archaeology. At ease whether examining religious practice at early Franciscan mission settlements or reconstructing prehispanic Andean land use, Wernke argues that we should avoid thinking of relations within the Inka and Spanish states as a dichotomy between colonizers and colonized; instead he traces how new kinds of communities and landscapes were co-produced at the local scale.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A must have for all Peruvian archaeologists, ethnohistorians, and historians, as well as for Andeanists in general. Richly illustrated and documented. Essential."--"Choice"

"An intriguing narrative of place and landscape, illustrating how space is negotiated and locally mediated in the Colca Valley over five centuries."--"American Anthropologist"

"Fascinating and innovative. . . . Presents a rigorous methodology."--"Antiquity"

"Impressive. . . . The combination of methods employed in this book and the nuanced perspectives they provide draw attention to the contrasting visions of colonization produced by textual records and material evidence."--"Hispanic American Historical Review"

"Skillfully weaves together archaeological data, archival transcriptions, and geographic information systems (GIS) analyses. . . . Offers a novel perspective on colonialism, concentrating less on how colonial authorities sought to "impose "idealized imperial strategies over indigenous peoples and more on the practices through which, and the places where, Collaguas, Inkas, and Spanish negotiated their interests, and ultimately, "improvised "a new colonial society."--"Historical Archaeology"

"Opens fresh perspectives into these fundamental episodes in Andean history."--"Journal of Latin American Studies"

"A groundbreaking study which has set the bar high for further prehistoric and colonial archaeologists working in the Andes and elsewhere. . . . Excels at smashing traditional disciplinary boundaries and methodologies and underscores the need for late prehistoric and colonial period archaeologists to develop larger and more sophisticated toolkits in the study of cultural landscapes."--"Journal of Anthropological Research"
