A broad look at the Inca and their contemporaries in South America in the time period leading up to Columbus voyages. With significant European contact the first peoples of the Western Hemisphere were changed radically, and so was the Old World. What were the peoples of South America doing before European contact? How many were there? How did they live? What technology did they have? What were their spiritual practices? What kind of art did they have? Using mainly The Great Courses and other video documentaries, this course will explore these questions. Archaeological evidence plays the major role here, but later Inca periods also have some literary evidence which was recorded after Spanish contact.
