HUM 111 - Art And Archaeology Of Ancient Peru: The Age Of Master Craftsmen
In the Andes Mountains and desert coasts of Peru a pageantry of cultures unique in the world flourished and vanished long before Europeans arrived. This illustrated survey includes the first monumental architecture in the ancient Americas, and the esoteric foundations of Andean style and power revealed in temple ruins. The course focuses on two of the most famous, enigmatic, and spectacular cultures of ancient Peru; the Nasca, whose art included gigantic ground drawings and brilliant polychrome pottery, and the Moche, whose golden tombs and astoundingly realistic ceramic portraiture remain unique in world prehistory. A companion course (Andean Empires: Tiahuanaco, Wari, and the Incas) is planned for the winter term.
