Museum Tours
Wonders of Peru

July 28-August 9, 2002

Join fellow members of the Museum of Man and anthropologist Doug Sharon, Director of the Museum, on this 13-day expedition to explore the cultural heritage of Peru. Dr. Sharon will share his decades of experience in Peru and his continuing research projects in northern Peru. He was instrumental in acquiring protection for one of the latest archaeological finds in Peru, intact bundled mummies found in steep cliff tombs on the edge of the jungle.

Highlights of the trip include the Gold Museum in Lima, the Moche Tomb of the Lord of Sipan, the Bruning Museum and Witches Market, Pacatnamu pyramids overlooking the Pacific, the murals of Chan-Chan, the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Chavín de Huantar, and the reed boats of Huanchaco. Also visit sites in the Inca heartland, including Cuzco, Chinchero, Ollantaitambo, and Machu Picchu, one of the archaeological wonders of the world. The cost is $3,295 plus air fare. Please contact Kathleen Hamilton at the Museum for more information and a brochure.
