The Incas and Their Ancestors
The Archaeology of PeruBook - 1992
In 1532, when Pizarro conquered Peru, the Inca realm was one of the largest empires on earth, rivalling that of Ming China or the Ottoman Turks. This glittering culture however only obscured the rich and diverse civilizations that had preceded it: Chavin, Moche, Nazca, Tiwanaku, Huari and Chimu. Intense research into this heritage has been carried out during the last generation and this work presents a synthesis of these new findings.
