Incan & Wari Archaeology in Peru
Volunteers on this project will be involved in a range of activities, including mapping and excavations, classifications and community work.
The archaeology project is based just outside the town of Lucre, approximately 40 minutes from Cusco, where volunteers will live. The main long-term aim of the project is the investigation and mapping of unregistered structures and forms in the Pikillaqta National Park. Despite years of Spanish rule, Peru has managed to retain a rich Incan legacy which can be seen throughout the country. The majestic ruins of Machu Picchu and the Inca capital city of Cusco are among the most fascinating Inca sites.
Depending on the time of year of your placement, you may find yourself preparing sites, assisting on digs, mapping sites, and assisting on site maintenance work. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to attend workshops, visit the local museum, and visit other achaeological sites of interest. One of the long-term goals of the Incan & Wari Archaeology project is the investigation and mapping of unregistered structures and forms in Pikillaqta National Park. Volunteers will work alongside Peruvian archaeological experts who oversee the project. This placement is a great way to gain hands-on experience in a number of different archaeological activities!
