Please join the Beloit College Logan Museum of Anthropology for a public presentation by Professor Kylie Quave titled "Excavations in the Inca Imperial Heartland (Cuzco, Peru)".

The Inca transformed the region around their homeland of Cuzco in the Andean highlands beginning around the 13th century CE. As local populations were brought under their dominion, the Inca found both cooperative and combative neighbors. This presentation will discuss the strategies used by the Incas and their subjects to adapt to the new political and social order, as reconstructed through ongoing excavations in rural Cuzco. (Event co-sponsored by the Three Rivers Archaeological Society).

This event is free and open to the campus and community.
