The Adobes of Huaca del Sol and Huaca de La Luna


Mud bricks in Huaca del Sol and Huaca de la Luna differ in soil composition, dimensions, mold marks, and makers' marks. The differences reflect conditions of brick production and use, and some variables are chronologically significant. This paper discusses the archaeological significance of adobes in these platform mounds, located on the south side of the Moche Valley. Four brick variables-soil, dimensions, mold, and makers' marks-are examined in terms of patterns of associations.
