October 28, by Diana McDonald, Ph.D., Boston College – Peru has some of the greatest art and archaeological sites of the Western Hemisphere. With art-making cultures that stretch back thousands of years before the Inca, there are treasures – including gold and silver artifacts, colorful pottery, sculpture, and truly amazing textiles – that were found in almost every bit of land. We will take you on a tour of some of these cultures’ greatest works – collected in some of the most overlooked museums in Lima, as well as Santiago, Chile.

Then, in 1565, the city — one of the largest in the world — was abandoned. In this talk, Carla Sinopoli, draws on more than three decades of archaeological research at Vijayanagara to trace the story of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Vijayanagara and the empire it ruled.
