The aim of this archaeology and bioarchaeology field school is to learn of the lifestyle of the prehispanic population in Peru Highlands. Our project revolves around funeral aspects and ancestral cults. We are undertaking archaeological excavations in order to obtain information which helps us understand these subjects.The project is supported by the Archaeological Museum of Huaraz, Instituto Nacional de Cultura, The Municipality of Huari and The Instituto de Estudios Huarinos.
Huari Archaeological project during season 2013 will improve methodology in both areas (archaeology and bioarchaeology) by adding more days for osteology studies and lectures using power point presentations in Huari Lab. Please notice that this is a full research project and not a PhD research run by students with a deadline in mind. Our staff is Peruvian professionals, not students (Master or PhD), everyone with minimum eight years of experience. We offer to improve your skills in a field and lab in an academical and friendly environment.
