Proyecto “Prácticas en Vida, Presencia después de la Muerte: Lo estilístico y lo material en Paracas Necrópolis”

We are so happy to report that we have finally received permission to conduct research within the museum system of Peru’s new Ministerio de Cultura, specifically in the Museo Nacional de Antropología, Arqueología e História del Perú (MNAAHP) and the Museo Regional de Ica (MRI).  This is an historic moment, as the museums are working out the oversight protocol for the first archaeological project to undertake substantial new research in a historic collection important to Peru’s national identity and our understanding of Andean history.  If we can meet our goals, together with the goals of each museum and the Ministry, both understanding of the Paracas site and the catalogue and storage of the Paracas materials will be improved.   We are beginning the planning process with directors Carmen Arrellano of the MNAAHP and Susana Arce of the MRI, and will have more news soon.
