  #845 Incredible Peru

Instructor: Mary Sharpe Pfeiffer    Dates: Thursdays: May 11, 18         Time: 1:30 – 3:25 PM

When we think of Peru, many only know about the Inca and Machu Picchu. Did you know an early civilization of Peru built step pyramids 470 years before the Egyptians? Early Peruvians mummified their ancestors 2,000 years before the Egyptians. In this class we will explore some fascinating early civilizations of Peru with their rich textiles, pottery, gold and traditions. In the second class we will “travel” to Machu Picchu and Cusco as we learn about the mighty Inca Empire.
