Constructed between the years of 200AD and 700AD, Huaca Pucllana is a real life ancient marvel. Archaeologists have been working since 1981 to uncover its secrets and the work still goes on.
You will be working between the hours of 8am and 2pm, Monday to Friday, getting stuck in with excavation, cleaning, registering and cataloguing archaeological material as well as teaching English to guides on an informal basis. Activities such as sieving, classifying collections, making bricks, cleaning archaeological artefacts occur year round, while digs are not possible between February and mid May due to the summer heat.
