Museo Regional de Ica

Between May and September 2011, we have conducted two months of intensive research on the contents of two Paracas Necropolis mortuary bundles housed in the Museo Regional de Ica.  As part of this research, we improved the electric installation and installed new table surfaces in the laboratory spaces at the Museum and carried out preventative conservation measures and rehousing of the textiles associated with burials 136 and 352. We worked with a wonderful group of students and recent graduates of the Universidad Nacional San Luis Gonzaga, with the assistance and supervision of Museum staff.  Project staff in charge of textile analysis included director Ann Peters, professional archaeologists Carmen Carranza  and Anita Murga and archaeological conservator Andrés Shiguekawa.
