Quick Reference

[Ge]

The concept behind this term was introduced to Andean archaeology by Max Uhle in 1913 and later formalized by A. L. Kroeber in 1944. In essence, a horizon style is a widespread but chronologically restricted cultural continuum represented by the wide distribution of a recognizable art style. Such horizon styles may cross‐cut local sequences and provide the means of relating sequences between regions.
