This chapter traces the establishment and growth of complex agro-pastoral societies in the Titicaca Basin during the Altiplano Period. It explains that the collapse of the Tiwanaku state ushered in a period in which agro-pastoral economies dominated the cultural landscape of the Titicaca Basin. The Tiwanaku centers gave way to a highly dispersed settlement pattern when the Titicaca Basin peoples built large refuge sites called pukaras among the many scattered small villages and hamlets.

Keywords:   agro-pastoral societies, Titicaca Basin, Altiplano Period, cultural landscape, dispersed settlement, pukaras
