Fieldschool 2019: Colonial Mobilities in the Andes
This summer, Dr. Noa Corcoran-Tadd and four undergraduates from Leiden’s Faculty of Archaeology have been conducting the Colonial Mobilities in the Andes 2019 archaeological survey in southern Peru. Working in conjunction with a project led by Dr. Sarah Baitzel (Washington University in St Louis), Arturo Rivera and Bárbara Carbajal, the Leiden team explored a landscape that connected productive coastal valleys with highland and altiplano centers during both the late prehispanic and postconquest periods. Following several weeks of work in the field, the Leiden students (Ewout van der Meulen, Jasper Oolders, Louise van Schaik, and Victoria Davies) put together the following post on what they had seen so far:
