The Viru Valley Project is an attempt to coordinate various phases of anthropological and allied research around an important central problem - the intensive study of human cultural adaptation within the confines of a small area over a long period of time. The Viru Valley, in north coastal Peru, was selected for this purpose since it was known to have been a small but important component of one of the oldest and most complex native civilizations in the Americas, and because it is a representative agricultural unit in the modern economy of Peru. More specific qualifications of the particular valley for such combined scientific analysis is outline in this work.
