The Incas and their Ancestors (Paperback)
Described as a ‘masterly study’ and ‘an outstanding volume’ on its first publication, The Incas and Their Ancestors quickly established itself as the best general introduction to the cultures and civilisation of ancient Peru. This fully revised edition offers new clarity to the origins of the Incas in the wake of extensive modern research on America’s largest native empire.
Copious illustrations display the artistic sophistication and technological expertise of these ancient peoples. Examining the most recent discoveries form the latest excavations, this volume remains the most authoritative survey of the great South American civilizations now available, of equal fascination for student, scholar or traveller.
