Late Archaic period (3,000 – 1,800 b.C.).
Caral is the second oldest Civilization in the world, it is contemporary with the pyramids of Egypt and it’s located in the middle of mountains 190 km north of Lima. Caral also is the oldest civilization in America and has an approximate age of 5,000 years.
Together with Caral, 25 settlements of the same period have been identified, along with a 40 km stretch passing through Supe’s valley. At each of these archaeological sites, there are public buildings with sunken circular plazas, as well as domestic units. Of them all, the Sacred City of Caral is the center where we find a well-organized use of space and the greatest architectural complexity, features that position it as the most outstanding of all the urban settlements identified in Peru dating back to the Late Archaic period.
