My name is Matthew Piscitelli (Ph.D., University of Illinois at Chicago) and I am an anthropological archaeologist. Since 2008, I have worked in Peru and dedicated my life to uncovering the country’s rich, ancient past in order to preserve it for the future. This website not only chronicles my exciting adventures, but it also shares the results of my innovative research at the Late Archaic (3000-1800 B.C.) site of Huaricanga in the Fortaleza Valley along Peru’s north central coast.
