Course Description

In the desert coastal lowlands of north Peru, the Moche culture flourished from AD 100-800. This pre-Inca people were known for their huge, dazzlingly painted adobe pyramids at Huaca de la Luna and Huaca del Sol, and their vividly painted and beautifully modelled ceramics. We will look at this complex, mysterious culture, explore current thinking about Moche politics, history, society and religion, and see how the Moche, who had no system of writing, used their extraordinary ceramics to convey information about their lives and beliefs.
