The bales of Ancón
Lucia Watson Jiménez
This is a pioneering work regarding the integration of different sources of information from an interdisciplinary point of view, that is to say unpublished archive notes, material analysis as well as 3D reconstructions of funerary bundles. This research is one of the few in Latin America that uses novel non-destructive and non-invasive methods for the study of funerary bundles based on 3D reconstructions of CT-Scan.
It is the first book that processes the unpublished information from the excavations of the Necropolis of Ancon from the Tello archive of the “Museo Nacional de Antropología e Historia del Perú” (National Museum of Anthropology and History of Peru”), which provides information about the way of life and mortuary treatment in Ancon. The presentation of this publication included comments by Dr. Andrew Nelson, Dr. Krzysztof Makowski and the author herself.
