At a Glance

Join Oscar Oviedo Velasco, historian and native Peruvian, for this exciting lecture on the unique and independent development of civilization in Peru. Discover how the country's distinctive geography provided resources for early human settlers 14,000 years ago, paving the way for the emergence of the mighty Inca Empire. In this presentation, we will explore the Stone Age, the rise of Peru's first civilized societies and the development of influential cultures such as Chavin and Paracas.
