This collection of artifacts was derived through systematic archaeological studies in the Lambayeque region of northern coastal Peru. It is the first comparative collection of its kind. It crosses intercontinental boundaries by taking artifact out of storage and museums, and placing them in the hands of learners. Please feel free to download and use for educational purposes only. Access to materials provided by Sicán National Museum, Ferreñafe, Peru. Objects remain in the care of Sicán National Museum under the direction of the Peruvian Ministry of Culture. Special thanks to the UNPRG volunteers who helped to create the models, PAS and PIAZ (NSF Award #1519048) archaeology projects for granting access to collections.


This architectural compound was excavated in 2015 by the Proyecto de Investigación Arqueológica Zaña (PIAZ), project team directed by Dr. Kayeleigh Sharp of Southern Illinois University and Lic. Juan Martinez of the Bruning Museum, Lambayeque, Peru. This project was funded by a generous NSF doctoral dissertation research improvement grant.
