Abstract


MEDS BV, a company based in the Netherlands but mainly active in the
Americas, perform an aerial LiDAR and photogrammetric survey in November
2019 at the archaeological site of Kuelap, on the northeastern Peruvian
cordillera at about 3000 m altitude (Amazonas region).
Although the monumental Kuelap site complex is immense and was likely
the most populous settlement in the Utcubamba river valley, the site and
its occupants are not described in any known documents left by the early
Spanish colonists. Consequently, and despite intensive archaeological
studies, important questions regarding Kuelap’s political, economic, and
religious roles in the region remain unresolved.
The work has the logistical support of the IGN, Instituto Geográfico Nacional
of Peru, and avails itself of the collaboration of anthropologist Warren
Church, a specialist in ancient Andean cultures and expert in the archaeology
of the region under study.
