Resumen : AS knowledge of the early pottery-making cultures in the New World has expanded, it has become increasingly evident that widely separated regions were influenced by a common source. Similarities in vessel shape, surface finish and technique of decoration are too close and too complex to be considered independent invention. In the developmental terminology used by American archaeologists, this early period is known as the Formative. Formative period cultures in Middle America and in Peru have been known for many years, and the discovery of new sites constantly expands their description and distribution. However, knowledge is meager in the intervening area, making it difficult to provide satisfactory answers about the nature of the movement involved and the direction in which it went. Until recently, Ecuador was one of the regions in which Formative period remains had not been reported. In 1954 a deep stratigraphic excavation at Chorrera on the Rio Babahoyo in Guayas province uncovered the first material related to the Formative horizon of Middle America and the contemporary periods (Chavin-Cupis- nique and Salinar) of Coastal Peru. Lately the sequence has been pushed back still farther with the discovery of the Valdivia culture, identified as Early Formative.
