The excavations were carried out at Kuntur Wasi, an archaeological site of the Formative period in the Department of Cajamarca in northern Peru. The principal aime of this project was to investigate the southern part of the main platform of this site.
The results are as the followings :
1.The Formative period at Kuntur Wasi was divided into four phases : the Idolo phase, 1100-700B.C. ; the Kuntur Wasi phase, 700-450B.C. ; the Copa phase, 450-250B.C. ; the Sotera phase, 250-50B.C.
2.Seven subphases (Idolo-1,2, Kuntur Wasi, Copa-1,2,3,4) of construction activities were identified in the southern part of the main platform.
3.The three-stepped retaining wall and a staircase were unearthed in the southwestern end of the main platform.
4.Many stone-lined canals were found in the Copa phase. This hydraulic system appears to have been built primalily for ceremonial activities.
5.Two stone sculptures were discovered. One sculpture was found in situ at the final step of the northwestern staircase of the central plaza.
6.A large amount of sherds of the Idolo phase were collected from the southern part of the main platform.
