Episode 9 Norte Chico
After introducing the Inca Empire in the previous episode, we now trace back to the origin of ancient Peruvian civilization -- Norte Chico. You may not be very familiar with the civilization, but its cultural importance paralleled that of Olmecs for Mesoamerica and Sumerians for Mesopotamia.
