This chapter explores the archaeology of the lower Ica Valley. This is based upon many seasons of archaeological fieldwork with the purpose of gathering different datasets with which to reconstruct geomorphological, ecological, and land-use changes in the Samaca and Ullujaya basins. The chapter looks at the rich archaeological record in these basins from the Early Horizon (c.750 bc) through to the Inca Late Horizon that ended abruptly with Spanish conquest in ad 1532, as revealed through detailed archaeological survey and excavation.

Keywords:   Ica Valley, archaeological record, Samaca, Ullujaya, Early Horizon, Late Horizon
