Description
When Alfred Kroeber left Lima, Peru, for the ruins of the Nazca region in July 1926, he could have had no inkling of the importance of what he would uncover. Nor would he have guessed that his excavation report would not appear until the end of the century, rediscovered and completed by Donald Collier and Patrick Carmichael decades after Kroeber's death in 1960. The report contains what is still the only complete analysis and seriation of the beautiful painted pottery of Nazca, with 421 photographs and drawings of objects uncovered in the excavations (including 32 in color). It is also notable for its rare discussion of Nazca architecture; its description of cloth, hair bundles, and other artifact groups; its accurate analysis of Nazca human remains; and for one of the earliest descriptions and photographs of the Nazca lines, as well as for Kroeber's advanced excavation methodology, which would not become standard until the 1950s. A final chapter by Katharina J. Schreiber puts Kroeber's work in the context of contemporary Nazca studies, including a reassessment of the sites discovered in the 1926 expedition.
