ANTH 42100 - Moche Archaeology Seminar

The Moche were an archaeological culture from the desert coast of Peru that provide an opportunity to explore anthropological theories regarding nascent state formation, priestly elites, feasting and ritual, human sacrifice, conflict and warfare, environmental degradation, and societal collapse. We will explore these topics using a comparative, four-field anthropological approach.
