The Incas: History and Treasures of an Ancient Civilization
Author: Carolina Orsini
isbn: 9788854407114

The volume is dedicated to the presentation of the Incas and is based on the information that has been handed down to us from ancient records, from mythology and from archaeology. The volume seeks to reveal to the general public the historical conditions, reasons and events that led to Incas' success between the 13th and 15th centuries AD in imposing their domination upon the numerous populations native to the vast Andean territory

Indepth examinations that enable the Reader to grasp the complex structure of Incan society and its political, economic and religious organization. Following the winding path of the Urubamba River across the so-called Sacred Valley, the heart of the empire, this volume, enhanced by splendid images, visits the famous archaeological sites where, in a magnificent collaboration with the environment, the Incas were able to mold their own history through the construction of roads, hanging bridges, sanctuaries and cities.

The Incas developed a culture that was the end result of a long process of transformation which involved all the thousand-year old Pre-Hispanic civilizations of the Peruvian area: they were however able, more than any predecessor or challenger, to build relationships and dominate far-flung and extremely varied territories. For this reason, they remain the unifying symbol of the modern Andean nations.
