Research

Dr. Chicoine studies the ancient complex societies that developed in the Central Andes. He focuses on the design and use of architectural spaces, modes of social interactions, foodways, funerary practices, visual arts, paleoenvironment, and religious symbolism. He is currently directing a long-term excavation project in Nepeña, an important valley of the Department of Ancash on the north-central coast of Peru.
