At a Glance

After the arrival of the Spaniards in Peru, the whole world started to talk about the Incas, their empire and their gold. But few people know about the many rich civilizations that preceded them. In this lecture, we will explore some of the most important archaeological discoveries in Peru in the last 40 years – spectacular tombs that have evaded the treasure hunters and the Spanish conquest — as we study pre-Inca civilizations like Moche and Lambayeque.
