Arqueol. Iberoam.

The parish of Quimiag is part of the Riobamba canton (Chimborazo, Ecuador). This territory has had so far no material remains of the Puruha culture in published studies. While connecting a series of irrigation pipes in an agricultural area, workers located a set of complete vessels. An inspection of this context was carried out, observing numerous fragments of Puruha pottery belonging to burials that could be ascribed to the Integration Period (AD 500–1490). The present report provides an analysis of some of the materials that appear on the surface in order to delimit and protect the site.
