1) Which of the following, if true, provides the strongest support for an archaeologist’s conclusion that a particular stretch of ancient stone-paved road was part of the Inca road system?
A) When the Inca conquered the area, they took some of the existing roads into their road system and then greatly extended the road system.
B) The particular stretch of road is oriented north and south, the orientation that many of the major roads in the Inca system had because of the north-south orientation of the Andes chain.
C) Shards of eleventh-century pottery from a distant part of what later became the Inca empire were found next to the stretch of road.
D) The stretch of road is the only ancient road between two places that were listed consecutively in a sixteenth-century list of way stations on the Inca road system.
