Notes:  “Why is the design of Inka settlements important?  First, they are a major archaeological phenomenon spread over and area larger than that of an other pre-Columbian civilization.  Second, their design informs us about how Inkas thought, and about ideas purveyed to their subjects.  Third, the planing of Inka state installations tells us something about how the empire was organized, managed, and defended.  Finally, the settlements are so complex that information from them influences the interpretation of most other Inka physical remains.”  (from the Introduction)
