Congratulations to Dr. VanValkenburgh for Receiving Prestigious NEH Grant!

Parker VanValkenburgh is the principal investigator of a research project that has been awarded a Collaborative Research Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project, entitled “Imperial Spaces: Forced Resettlement, Diet, and Daily Life at Carrizales, Peru” examines how indigenous people adapted to Spanish attempts to resettle them into planned towns in the late 16th century. With the support of the NEH, project researchers will conduct archaeological excavations at two sites in Peru’s ZaƱa valley, artifact analysis, and archival research in Peru and Spain. Final products will include publications for scholarly and public audiences, as well as a public website featuring data collected during the course of fieldwork.
