    DescriptionThis fascinating visual history tells the story of the ancient peoples of Peru and the Andes. Split into two sections, the first part of the book focuses on how these communities functioned, and day-to-day life for ordinary people at work and home. The second part of the book tells the story of the arts and architecture, discussing the styles and materials used, the sophisticated urban planning developed to design and locate ceremonial, administrative and palatial buildings; the sculptures that adorned them; and the amazing beauty of their ceramics, fabrics and metalwork. Timelines, feature boxes and a glossary provide instant reference, and this accessible volume is illustrated with more than 500 photographs, artworks and maps.
