Mobility in the Atacama Desert, northern Chile, in the Late Intermediate Period (AD 900–1450): A re-evaluation using stable isotope analysis

Abstract:

Research on the Late Intermediate Period (AD 900–1450) in northern Chile has been strongly influenced by two mobility models: John Murra's classic vertical ecological archipelago model, with highland colonies in the lowlands; and the gyratory mobility model, with pastoralists and their llama caravans controlling trade.
