Cultures of South America: Partnerships

The Museo Contisuyo, located in Moquegua, Peru was founded in 1994 based on the research of an international research consortium of archaeologists and geologists that began under Field Museum auspices in 1981.  Today it serves as the research base and collections maintenance facility for active field research projects from the Field Museum, University of California, University of North Carolina, and the University of Florida, among others.  Hundreds of scholars have conducted research in the program over the past 30 years extending this scope even further.
