Incidence of Travel: Recent Journeys in Ancient South America


Archaeological literature originates with travel narratives—accounts by natural historians and engaged travelers—but today narrative is largely absent in the articles, reports, and monographs we archaeologists produce.  Yet, I argue that there is room within our scholarship for the reincorporation of narrative, particularly as a manner of engaging with a broader reading audience.  In my research on cultural landscapes in South America, the intersection of my travels, studies of archaeological sites, and participation in modern ceremonies have profoundly deepened my understanding of how spaces become meaningful places.  To illustrate this, I will discuss my 2015 journey to the Fiesta of Qollyur R’iti in the southern Peruvian Andes and its implications for understanding dynamics of sacred space in archaeological sites.
