When the Spanish arrived in South America in the 16th century, the Inka controlled an empire with a capital in the Peruvian Andes, extending through much of the Andes, from what is now Colombia in the north to Chile in the south. Their’s was a spectacular culture with amazing monumental architecture, fine ceramics and textiles as well as gold and silver.
However, the Inka, as a significant cultural entity, were only around for a few centuries before the arrival of the Spanish. Their culture was built on the developments that had taken place over thousands of years by those who preceded them.
This brief introductory talk will provide an overview of the Andean region and its cultural development to introduce such cultural groups as the Chavin, Nazca, Paracas, Moche, Wari, Tiwanaku and Chimu - collectively the ancestors of the Inka
