The Incas and Their Ancestors: The Archaeology of Peru (Revised Edition)
The Incas and Their Ancestors: The Archaeology of Peru (Revised Edition)
by Michael E. Moseley
Book Description: In 1532, when Pizarro conquered Peru, the Inca realm was one of the largest empires on earth, graced by gold masterpieces, towns with great palaces and temples, and an impressive network of roads. But this glittering culture only obscured the rich and diverse civilizations that had preceded it: Chavin, Moche, Nazca, Tiwanaku, Huari, and Chimú. Described as a "masterly study" and an "outstanding volume" on its first publication, The Incas and Their Ancestors quickly established itself as the best general introduction to the cultures and civilizations of ancient Peru. Now this classic text has been fully updated for the revised edition. New discoveries over the last decade are integrated throughout. The occupation of Peru's desert coast can now be traced back to 12,000 BC and ensuing maritime adaptations are examined in early littoral societies that mummified their dead and others that were mound builders. The spread of Andean agriculture is related to fresh data on climate, and protracted drought is identified as a recurrent contributor to the rise and fall of civilizations in the Cordillera. The results of recent excavations enliven understanding of coastal Moche and Nazca societies and the ancient highland states of Huari and Tiwanaku. Architectural models accompanying burials provide fresh interpretations of the palaces of imperial Chan Chan, while the origins of the Incas are given new clarity by a spate of modern research on America's largest native empire. 225 b/w illustrations.

Moche Art and Archaeology in Ancient Peru
Moche Art and Archaeology in Ancient Peru
by Joanne Pillsbury, National Gallery of Art
Book Description: Centuries before the rise of the Inca, the Moche created impressive monumental architecture and precious metal objects (c. A.D. 100800). Today, large- scale projects at several sites in Peru, including the richest unlooted tomb ever discovered in the New World, have uncovered dramatic new discoveries about this ancient coastal civilization. This volume discusses the implications of these findings. A major theme of the book is how the visual arts and political representation are connected in Moche culture. The contributors pay special attention to the relations between Moche visual imagery and other kinds of knowledge gained from the archaeological record. Topics ranging from the nature of urbanism to Moche portraiture to the visual representation of warfare versus the physical remains of battles will fascinate not only archaeologists and art historians but also students and scholars in related disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

The Secret of the Incas : Myth, Astronomy, and the War Against Time
by William Sullivan
Step by step, Sullivan pieces together the hidden esoteric tradition of the Andes to uncover the tragic secret of the Incas, a tribe who believed that, if events in the heavens could influence those on earth, perhaps the reverse could be true. Anyone who reads this book will never look at the ruins of the Incas, or at the night sky, the same way again.
