Peruvian Ancient Cultures

Peruvian territory has been inhabited for about 14,000 years by hunters and gatherers. Subsequent developments include the appearance of sedentary communities and the emergence of socio-political hierarchies.

Andean cultural formations

These cultures developed advanced techniques of cultivation, gold and silver work, pottery, metallurgy and weaving. Some of the social structures that later (around the 12th century C.E) formed the base of the Inca Empire may be traced back to these previous periods.
