Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. Construction note: In group 2, the first and second pendant are paired and the third and fourth pendant are paired by special construction.
    1. A double length cord was bent in half,
    2. and then slipped through itself around main cord forming 2 adjacent pendants.
  2. By spacing, these are two groups of pendants. All cords are the same color.
  3. Long knots occur consistently in hundreds, tens, and units positions. No single knots occur.
  4. The value of pendant 9 is the sum of the values of pendants 6 and 7.
