The Inka Empire, known as Tawantinsuyu to those who lived there, achieved an imperial scale in less than one century. Since the Spanish Conquest, a tremendous corpus of literature has been published on the Inka by scholars representing multiple disciplines; these include relatively recent contributions from Andean bioarchaeologists. This study contributes to Inka scholarship and an overarching bioarchaeology of empire through the bioarchaeological investigation of phenotypic variability of individuals recovered from locales which had been incorporated by the Inka. Few
