La Galgada, Peru: A Preceramic Culture in Transition

Andean South America is one of the regions where civilization arose independently before bce. The ruins of La Galgada Rockslide have provided some of the richest evidence in Peru of early cultural development. Isolation and aridity account for the well-preserved buildings, irrigation canals and field patterns, and burial tombs containing offerings of gourd vessels, baskets, cotton and bast cloth, stonework, shell and turquoise jewelry, and even feathers. The similarity of the material from La Galgada to that from such contemporary sites as Kotosh, Huaricoto, and Huaca Prieta reveals a widespread shared culture before the introduction of pottery about bce.

La Galgada

Historical background[ edit ] The Andean Pre-Ceramic Period[ edit ] The Lithic Period was followed by what archaeologists have called the Pre-Ceramic Period , or alternatively the Late Archaic Period, and is characterised by increasing societal complexity, rising population levels and the construction of monumental ceremonial centres across the Andean region. Archaeologists investigating the site noted that there was both continuation and variation in the practice of human burial at the site, with most variation being in the position of the burials and the way that they had been prepared, whilst there was most continuity in the type of textiles and offerings deposited with the bodies. Archaeologists have established the figure to have been a male over the age of fifty, who was flexed on his right side. Surrounding him are cotton bags, baskets and gourd vessels that have been deposited as offerings.
