Centuries before the rise of the Inca, the Moche created impressive monumental architecture and precious metal objects. Today, large-scale projects at several sites in Peru, including the richest unlooted tomb ever discovered in the New World, have uncovered dramatic new evidence of this ancient coastal civilization. The volume discusses the implications of these findings.
