Jeffrey Quilter, Director of Harvard University’s Peabody Museum, has focused his lifetime of archeological research on the prehistoric and Early Colonial cultures of the New World, especially in Peru and Costa Rica. His recent work is the archaeological and historical investigation of a 16th-18th century town and church complex on the north coast of Peru.
This lecture will discuss the larger social and political world of Early Colonial Peru and the detailed view of the daily lives of the people of this community, Magdalena de Cao, Viejo, as revealed by the collaborative efforts of a multinational investigative team.
