Abstract

In late pre-Hispanic periods much of modern Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Ecuador was connected by a network of intense interactions through the long distance movement of people as well as goods and ideas. Rather than prioritising an analysis of the movement of goods as a measure of globalisation this article stresses the more limited role of market exchange in the Andes but that the movement of people, knowledge and skills is strongly expressed in the transfer of technologies and sharing of stylistic elements. It presents a broad description of cross-cultural and interregional contacts that were taking places in the Andean highlands and Pacific coast from around 500 CE till the period of European colonization around 1600 CE, including the Wari and Inka Empires. It reviews mechanisms of social and economic integration that shaped the globalizing tendencies in the Andes through a review of archaeological evidence as well as early historical records.
