Archaeology

The coastal strip set the stage for the rise of many pre-Columbian cultures, such as Cupisnique, which is more than 3,000 years old, and the pre-Ceramic Huaca Prieta civilization, whish is more than 5,000 years old. By the year 1,200 A.C., the first one to expand beyond its craddle was the Moche or Mochica culture. It was basically an agriculture and/or a warrior culture, which built countless temples and palaces such as the Sol (Sun), Luna (Moon), Esmeralda (Emerald), Arco Iris (Rainbow) and other "huacas". The Chimú culture emerged later and built its capital in Chan Chan, the largest pre-Columbian city in South America. At its zenith, Chan Chan was home to 100 000 inhabitants who stubbornly resisted the expansion of the Inca Empire.
