Overview

Eight papers, from a symposium of the Pre-Columbian Society of Washington held in 1997, consider the place of human and animal sacrifice in Peru over a 2,000 year period, culminating around 1000 AD. The papers demonstrate that sacrifice played a significant role in the ritual practices of several cultures including Cupisnique, Chavin, Pucara, Nasca, Moche and Huari societies. The contributors also examine the survival of sacrifice in the archaeological record, including ceramics, artwork, embroideries, burials and skeletons, trophy-heads and architectural remains.

What People Are Saying

William J Conklin
This is indeed a significant contribution that contains an immense amount of new evidence. . . . The authors offer plentiful support for the view that human sacrifice is a very ancient and important, though shocking, Andean tradition.
