Temporalities of Andean Heritage Landscapes

Project description

Understanding the concept of time in Andean indigenous heritage

The efforts of native communities to regain control over their archaeological heritage in combination with the necessity of project/site managers to protect indigenous archaeological sites lead to the need for a new approach to local temporalities. The EU-funded TAHL project will conduct ethnographic research on Andean indigenous heritage by inquiring into the Quechua principle of muyuy. It will focus on the perception of time via the material world and the use of space in the Chinchero area, in the Cuzco region of Peru. The muyuy is a social and political principle that secures social relationships in the countryside. It organises communal agricultural work and production in a rotating system that periodically allocates plots to families for their maintenance.
