Yachay Wasi celebrates the remarkable career of Ian S. Farrington in archaeological research. Due to Ian’s dedication and passion as an educator, this volume represents a wide range of topics within the disciplines of history and archaeology across three regions: Australia, Europe and South America. The disparate range of articles in this volume, ranging from Australian historical archaeology to Inka archaeology to sacred landscape archaeology in Britain, represent the principal and eclectic interests of Ian’s career: Inka archaeology; landscape archaeology; the sacred landscape; and, the intersection of history and archaeology. In this manner, this volume is a fitting tribute to the 50 year career of Ian S. Farrington, displaying the generous and warm characteristics of this steadfast teacher, mentor, and friend.
