Warfare and Human Sacrifice in the Moche World: New Discoveries and Continuing Debates
Depictions of armed combat and the capture and sacrifice of prisoners are well known in the art of the ancient Moche of Peru. Since 1995, the iconographic record has been joined by archaeological evidence of the sacrificial practices themselves. This talk by John Verano (Tulane University) will give an update on the latest excavations in 2012, highlighting our current understanding of Moche sacrificial practices.
