Cultural Affairs and Distinguished Lecture Series
Project Abstract/ Summary
Peru: From Village to Empire traces the development of complex society in Peru from 13,000 BP to 1500 AD. The exhibit focuses on what led groups of people to choose a particular location and settle down, how these settlements developed from villages to towns to cities, and how kin related bands formed states and then empires. The exhibition will feature over thirty-five objects (ceramics, textiles and metalwork) and sixty graphics, including maps, photographs and drawings. The exhibit will be installed in the Museum's temporary exhibit level on the first level and on the ramp panels leading from the first to third level
