Biography

I am primarily interested in the comparative study of complex societies in prehistory, especially the politics and economics of empires. Regionally, my research has focused on Andean South America, where I have been studying the Inkas since 1977, mostly in Peru and Argentina. While my fieldwork has been archaeological, my research combines historical and archaeological study in equal measure.
