More Description

In Huaca Rajada, on the sunbaked plains of Peru, lie the ruins of an ancient royal burial chamber -- shoulder-deep in gold and silver ornaments and jewel-studded carvings -- uncovered by bandits only a decade ago. The excavation of these and other incredible sites has shed new light on the civilizations that came before the Incas. In this book archaeologist and Incan expert Nigel Davies analyzes these findings and reassesses the latest scholarly theories surrounding one of the world's great enigmatic civilizations. From the desert at Nazca to the great coastal civilization of Chimor, this compelling overview makes accessible the latest research on all the ancient kingdoms of Peru.
