Andean archaeology II - Art, landscape, and society

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The study of the origin and development of civilisation is of enormous importance for understanding the cultural processes that create human societies. One area for comparison is in the Central Andes where several societies remained in isolation without a written language. As a direct result, the only resource to understand these societies is their material artefacts. In this second volume, the focus is on the art and landscape remains and what they uncover about societies of the Central Andes region. The ancient art and landscape, revealing the range and richness of the societies of the area significantly shaped the development of Andean archaeology. This work includes discussions on pottery and textiles, iconography and symbols, ideology, geoglyphs and rock art. This volume will be of interest to Andean archaeologists, cultural and historical anthropologists, material archaeologists and Latin American historians.
Aside from slight bumping to edges and corners of the boards, the book is in very good condition. All text is clear on clean pages, throughout the book are numerous clear b/w plans, maps, diagrams, figures, charts and illustrations.
