Chavín de Huantar (was Chavin)[edit]

I'm not completely sure this skeletal article should be deleted; it does point to a real archaeological site. However, I've been unable to find any evidence that it qualifies as a "destination" in terms of places to sleep, etc. Someone want to do some research? -- Bill-on-the-Hill 22:37, 23 August 2008 (EDT)

  • Keep/Move Just been having a quick read of the Wikipedia entry and the Wikitravel policies. As you say, it is a real archaeological site. Whilst these don't necessarily qualify for their own entries, What is an article? does suggest that sites that are "far away (too far for a day trip) from any city and would require an overnight stay" means that this site may be an exception, given Lima seems to be 250km (155 miles) away. I suspect this will be at least a 4 hour trip each way, and so would qualify as too far away for a day trip. My Peruvian geography isn't great though, so does anyone know if there is a significant settlement any nearer? However, the article does need some fleshing out to be worthwhile.
I suggest a Move as Chevin seems to refer to a people, and so not elegible for an article. The proper name appears to be Chavín de Huantar, and so may be more in keeping with policy if the article were renamed to reflect this. Nrms 09:05, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
OK, so no-one's objected in 14 days to this being moved, so have done so.
Only 1 other person has commented so far. No real consensus either way, but no-one's actually given a firm Delete yet, so is there a way forward? Nrms 05:09, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

  • OK, this looks like a Keep/Move to me now. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 12:50, 1 November 2008 (EDT)
