About this product
- DescriptionThis is a general history of the cultures and civilizations of pre-Hispanic Peru from pre-history to the Conquest. Although archaeological excavation, together with analytical study of colonial chroniclers, began in the early part of the twentieth century, the scope of investigation has been greatly intensified over the last two decades, with spectacular results. This is the first book for the general reader and student to incorporate these fresh insights and discoveries, and is as highly readable and engaging as its penetrating and informative.
- Author BiographyNIGEL DAVIES studied at the National University of Mexico and took his doctorate in archaeology at London University. He is the author of a number of studies on Latin American culture, including The Ancient Kingdoms of Mexico, which is also published by Penguin.
