    Broadening Our Horizons: Towards an Interdisciplinary Prehistory of the Andes.David Beresford-Jones & Paul Heggarty - 2012 - In Archaeology and Language in the Andes. pp. 57.
    This chapter proposes a new and more coherent interdisciplinary prehistory of the Andes, based firstly on a long overdue re-examination of the relationships between the various regional ‘dialects’ within the Quechua language family; and secondly on a more satisfactory correlation with the archaeological record. The founding principle is that language families necessarily reflect past expansive processes, whose traces should also be clear in the archaeological record. It provides a logic by which to assess correspondences between archaeological and linguistic patterns, on (...)

    Introduction: Archaeology, Linguistics, and the Andean Past: A Much-Needed Conversation.David Beresford-Jones & Paul Heggarty - 2012 - In Archaeology and Language in the Andes. pp. 1.
    This volume is a collection which includes the text of papers presented at the September 2008 Cambridge Symposium on Archaeology and Linguistics in the Andes. The Cambridge symposium sought to bring together the disciplines of linguistics and archaeology, in order to dispel a number of popular myths about the language history of the Andes. This introductory chapter first sets out the structure of the book and introduces its component chapters. Thereafter it clarifies briefly a number of principles from historical linguistics (...)

    Conclusion: A Cross-Disciplinary Prehistory for the Andes? Surveying the State of the Art.Paul Heggarty & David Beresford-Jones - 2012 - In Archaeology and Language in the Andes. pp. 407.
    This chapter sums up the new state of the cross-disciplinary art in Andean prehistory, as collectively represented by the foregoing chapters. Progress and new perspectives are explored first on key individual questions. Who, for instance, were the Incas, and whence and when did they come to Cuzco? How and when did Quechua, too, reach Cuzco, as well as its furthest-flung outposts in north-west Argentina, Ecuador, and northern Peru? The scope is then broadened to overall scenarios for how the main Andean (...)
