Inca Volcanic Stone Provenance in the Cuzco Province, Peru

Author:

Patrick N. Hunt

Abstract

The use of andesite and basalt as architectual ashlars by Inca stonemasons has been widely discussed throughout the literature. Most of these archaeological or architectural studies are in agreement that that primary Inca quarrying centers in the Cuzco area are in the Rio Huatanay valley at Rumiqolqa and Huaccoto, both to the southeast of Cuzco.
Keywords: Andesite basalt quarrying
