The first chapter illustrates the chronological events and the principal aspects of the many cultures-Nazca, Mocha, Chimu, and others-which have only recently begun to reveal their secrets to the public. The second chapter discusses the many expressions of Peruvian art, in particular, weaving and metal-working, and describes aspects of religion, society, and thought. The last part of the book is a guide to the archaeological sites of major interest, from the oldest crude brick pyramids of the coastal ceremonial centers to the extraordinary stone cities of the Incas and the Moche tombs discovered by Walter Alva at Lambayeque.
