Currently, anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians are debating how social patterns that reflect violence can be studied in societies. It is likely that Inca society was one of the states with ampler military knowledge and a significant war history. Spanish written records describe a warlike situation before the Inca Empire emerged, in which fights for regional dominion among local leaders were pervasive. Even though, few archaeological investigations have provided material evidence to study those rebellions. We intend to contribute to the understanding of this process providing archaeological and ethnohistorical data prior to the incorporation of northwest Argentina into the Inka Empire.
