Program Description:
The Huari Empire (ca. 600—1000 A.D.)  is undoubtedly one of the most complex, enigmatic, and important civilizations of the ancient world. As the earliest, most expansive, and powerful empires known to prehistory, Huari emerged in an arid, highland Andean region of Peru called Ayacucho, an area that had not previously experienced high cultural development, nor had the benefit of an immense population, great wealth or abundant natural resources. Given these challenges, how did Huari become the first--and the largest--civilization of the New World? The answer may be found in the sprawling, unexplored ruins of Wari, its eponymous capital city.
