- "Beyond Wari Walls broadens our understanding of Wari by viewing the Wari phenomenon from a variety of different regional perspectives. As more archaeological research is being conducted in Peru, a more complex picture of the Middle Horizon is emerging. The pioneers of Peruvian archaeology were right in identifying the period as a turning point in the country's prehistory. The rapid urbanization of Huari forever changed the cultural landscape of the Andes. Yet, the relationship between the city and the widespread interactions that it helped generate is not as straightforward as these archaeologists first thought. To understand what happened in Peru during the Middle Horizon, we need to continue to research the connections between the local, regional, and interregional changes that occurred during this period. This work needs to be done at Huari and the various Wari settlements found throughout Peru, but it also needs to be done beyond Wari walls." --Book Jacket.
