T he most famous civilization in Peru before the Europeans arrived was the Inca Empire. But there were many cultures in the area before the Inca! Let’s find out about them!








the most ancient city in the Americas








The Norte Chico
T he Norte Chico people flourished from around 3,000 to 1,700 BCE. They may have been the first city-dwellers in the Americas. They had more than thirty large cities, but evidence of this civilization only began coming to light in the 1990s.






T he Norte Chico had complex irrigation systems to bring water to their fields and to their cities, and they built stepped pyramids (stepped pyramids look from the side like you could walk up them like a staircase, unlike the pyramids of Egypt which had smooth sides).

Caral





T his culture created intricate woven textiles, but they did not make pottery or ceramics. Their biggest city, Caral, had no defensive walls and may have been mainly a city for religious events.






A s well as textiles, the Norte Chico may have invented an early writing system of the Americas, the quipu. A quipu message was “written” using patterns of knots in a series of threads, and the Inca Empire used it widely. It was still in use well into the nineteenth century in parts of Peru.
For some reason the Norte Chico culture ran into difficulties and its people abandoned its cities. We don’t yet know what happened to this civilization.
