Workshop:Mar Vista: Adventures in Archeology: Incredible Incas
Date:May 11, 1–3 PM

Description:Step back in time to help archaeologists unlock the secrets of the ancient Inca civilization! The Inca left no writing behind, so it’s up to you to help us understand this empire through its art and architecture, using the same skills that real-world archaeologists use in the field. You’ll also have the chance to make your own quipu, a type of knotted string that the Inca used to communicate with each other.


¡Retrocede en el tiempo para ayudar a los arqueólogos a descubrir los secretos de la antigua civilización inca! Los incas no nos dejaron su escritura, entonces depende de ti a ayudarnos a entender este imperio a través de su arte y arquitectura, utilizando las mismas habilidades que los arqueólogos.
