The Huari-Ancash archaeological Project is located in the Peruvian Andes. The Field school is one of the several components of the project. We run our own facilities, we do not rely on third parties for accommodation, transport, laboratory, or storage. We proudly run this field school for 20 years. Students will get the opportunity to learn surface survey and area excavation techniques on tombs. Besides lab experience focus on osteology and ceramic analysis. Our research examines how changes in mortuary patterns were associated with political and social organization transformations between AD 200 and 1600. By applying a diachronic approach, we study, how variation in tombs is reflected in public and ceremonial architecture, if there is continuity in the use of some type of tombs, and rituals associated with the dead. Tombs were places where ayllu -based and ancient Andean social organization materialized.
