Results obtained from fabric analysis using thin-section microscopy (TSM) and various other analytical strategies (e.g. Raman micro spectroscopy, FTIR, XRD ?microX ray diffraction- XRF, SEM-EDAX, and INAA) provide insights into production technology and the provenance of selected pottery sample from Prehispanic archaeological sites in Northwestern (NW) Argentina, North of Chile, and Bolivia (AD 900-1530). Iconographic and morphological analyses sustain the idea of interregional contacts that reflects in hybrid ceramic styles like La Paya Inka and Yavi Chico polychrome also.Those analyses helped us to know how the Inca state managed raw material sources and pottery manufacturing along Southern Andes according to the idea of interregional contacts, regional production, consumption, and distribution of local, non local or foreign styles (e.g Pacajes) and products, and Inca styles.
