Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Pachacamac. For a list of these khipus, see UR1097.
  2. Most of the pendants contain only one cluster of single knots. Because they cannot be viewed in relation to other knot clusters on the same pendant, although they are differently placed, all have been interpreted as in the 10's position.
