Contisuyo Archaeological Field School in Peru


Learn archaeological excavation and laboratory analysis techniques in the Andean foothills of southern Peru.  This season, the field school will excavate a village near the Wari imperial outpost of Cerro Baúl.  The Wari Empire (AD 600-1000) conquered Moquegua and we will be looking at the groups who lived in the region before the Wari invasion to understand what changes Wari brought to the area. How did local people cope with these changes?  You will be part of the team who will try to answer this question.


Dr. Donna Nash of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro is conducting an archaeological field school in southern Peru from June 10 to July 16, 2017. The application deadline is December 4, 2016. More information can be found in the course brochure.
