Abstract

Early circular living structures made of rough field stone, radiocarbon dated between 10,800 and 8300 BP, and probably affiliated with the Paiján culture on the north coast of Perú are discussed in terms of possible proto-household economies that are localized and socially aggregated in compressed environmental zones along the lower western slopes of the Andes. The technological, settlement, and economic data recovered from several sites in the Zaña and Jequetepeque Valleys are discussed briefly. Their broader implications are presented as well. © 2002 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
