Scope and Contents

The three volumes in this collection record daily work and livestock at Hacienda Sondor in Peru. All three volumes progress chronologically and contain indexes that list the names of individuals either in the employ of Hacienda Sondor or livestock owners. Each volume contains a skull-and-crossbones icon for those workers or livestock owners that died. Two of the volumes appear to be accounting records, counting the [work? attendance?] of a given worker, or documenting the number of sheep in a flock or the number of sheep that died.
