    This course provides a basic survey of the prehistory of ancient civilizations in the Central Andean Region of South America (the highland and coastal areas that today are part of Peru and Bolivia). Emphasis will be placed on the following cultures and periods: the Preceramic, Chavin, Paracas, Pukara, Moche, Nazca, Wari, Tiwanaku, Chimu, and Inca. In the traditional academic division of labor, ethno­graphers study the present, archaeologists study the past. Both aim to understand and explain human culture and society. Unlike ethnographers, however, archae­ologists work with a very partial kind of evidence: the fragmentary material remains.

    Civilizations before BC The Chavín culture, flourishing from the 10th century BC, has long been considered the first civilization of south America. But in recent decades archaeologists have revealed far earlier centralized societies in the Norte Chico region of Peru, along the Supe river. Kuznar, L.

The history of human habitation in the Andean region of South America stretches from ci BCE to the present day. Stretching for 7, km (4, mi) long, the region encompasses mountainous, tropical and desert environments.

This colonisation and habitation of the region has been affected by its unique geography and climate, leading to the development of unique cultural and societal. Other articles where Andean civilization is discussed: Andean peoples: it is conventional to call “Andean” only the people who were once part of Tawantinsuyu, the Inca Empire in the Central Andes, or those influenced by it.

Even so, the Andean region is very wide. It encompasses the peoples of Ecuador, including those of the humid coast—many of whose contacts. Pre-Columbian civilizations - Pre-Columbian civilizations - Andean civilization: For several thousand years before the Spanish invasion of Peru ina wide variety of high mountain and desert coastal kingdoms developed in western South America.

Applied first in the late 19th century and at its height in the s and s, the practice has decreased in the 21st century.Perhaps the contributions of South American archaeology to the larger field of world archaeology have been inadequately recognized. If so, this is probably because there have been relatively few archaeologists working in South America outside of Peru and recent advances in knowledge in other parts of the continent are only beginning to enter larger archaeological discourse.5/5(1).OCLC Number: Notes: Conference held Nov.Description: iii, pages: illustrations, maps ; 28 cm: Contents: Prehistory --Two Preceramic and Formative Period Occupations in the Cordillera Negra: Preliminary Report, Michael A.
