Abstract: During violent times, the defence of the community can be a powerful motivation for cooperation. This goal can outweigh other needs, and depending on the frequency and scale of the threat, people may even modify their daily habitus. Changes in settlement patterns and infrastructure are manifestations of these behavioural shifts as well as evidence of the modification of the networks of cooperation and the formation of new collectivities. Using the case of the transition between the Late and Final Formative in the Nepeña Middle Valley, North Coast of Peru, I explore and analyse the relationship between escalated conflict and the formation of new social identities and political coalitions. During this time, multiple interests, including different sources of threat, were shaping various nested systems of cooperation in the same region.
