Dr. Donna Nash (Anthropology) received new funding from The Field Museum for the project “A Provincial Palace at Cerro Baúl: Elite Strategies Practiced in the Domestic Sphere.” Palaces were and are significant settings, housing state officials and state institutions, and can act as symbols of state leadership and power, the abstract notes. Around the world scholars use the archaeological remains of palaces to understand the organization of early states because palaces were centers of political, economic, and ceremonial activity. Nash will prepare a manuscript describing results from investigations of a provincial palace at Cerro Baúl, a site in the Wari province of Moquegua, Peru.
