Figure 3: Maps showing (A) the northern hillside settlement of Cerro Chepén and the UTM coordinates of the structures selected for study and (B) the exposed architecture of Household 5, one of the proposed areas for excavation.
Figure 4: A 3D reconstruction of Household 1, the first Moche household excavated by Chiou in Cerro Chepén's lower hillside settlement. The reconstruction was stylized based on architectural styles noted on house models and maquettes from the Late Moche Period.
