Khipu Notes


This khipu is part of a group of four others that are attached to each other. Research notes for UR53A have a diagram of the khipu attachments, with arrows indicating the direction of data recording. As the khipu were mounted, going around the outside of the A-B-D loop, all attachments appear to be in Verso. On E and C, Verso side is mounted up, but not possible to tell which way these may have originally hung.
