The Story of the Incas image

The Inca Empire emerged in the highlands of the Central Andes in about 1400 and covered a vast expanse of territory.
This panel discussion, part of a series of events celebrating the British Museum’s current Peru: a journey through time exhibition, will explore the story of the Incas, from their origin through to after the Spanish Conquest, and look at everything from art and monumental architecture to politics and the administration of its Empire.
With a brief introduction by Cecilia Pardo-Grau, Lead Curator of the exhibition, this conversation will be chaired by Bill Sillar, Professor of Archaeology and Technology in Society (UCL) and includes expert guest speakers:
Terence N. D’Altroy, Loubat Professor of American Archaeology, Department of Anthropology (Columbia University, NY).
Andrew Hamilton, Lecturer and Associate Curator of Arts of the Americas (Art Institute of Chicago).
Dr Gabriela Ramos, Senior Lecturer in Latin American History (University of Cambridge).
The conversation will show how the unique culture of the Incas shaped the vibrant world of Peru and has left a legacy that lives on.
This event is part of the public programme accompanying Peru: a journey in time at the British Museum (11 November 2021 – 20 February 2022), supported by PROMPERÚ and organised with the Museo de Arte de Lima, Peru.
