Summary Describes prehistoric Peru's agriculture, governments, and social systems. His portraits of the region's inhabitants include discussions of their physical characteristics, customs, languages, medical and technical skills, and notions of beauty. The earliest inhabitants of Peru were nomadic food gatherers, hunters, and fisherman. Later, farming developed, and by 2000 B.C. more complex communities appeared, finally culminating in such sophisticated states as those of the Moche and Nazca peoples.--From publisher's description.
