Archaeology In Peru's Northern Coast

Cultures that inhabited Peru’s northern coast over 1000 years ago still fascinate archaeologists today. The Moche, the Gallinazo, the Sicán—these are just a few of the civilizations that existed hundreds of years before the Incan Empire reigned over the western coast of South America. In these lessons, learners can explore collections from the Larco Museum, the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library, and even artifacts scanned from Dr. Izumi Shamada’s and Dr. Kayeleigh Sharp’s research projects with the Sicán National Museum in Ferreñafe, Peru.
