For nearly a millennium, the pre-Hispanic, pre-Inca state of Tiwanaku was one of the great centers of an Andean civilization which extended from today's southern Peru to northern Argentina. Its capital, located high in the Andes, was believed for many years to be merely a ceremonial gathering place. In this volume, Kolata and his colleagues assert that Tiwanaku actually supported a large population that prospered for centuries using raised-field agriculture and document the ongoing archaeological and paleoecological research in the Lake Titicaca Basin of Bolivia. B&w photographs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
