For those who know me, its no secret that I love history. As a PCV, I’ve hit the jackpot with a placement in Peru. There’s so many different cultural heritages to learn about and so many great archaeological sites to visit that would make any history buff want to cry. Not to mention, there is so much more to Peruvian history than just than the Incas and Machu Picchu. So in the spirit of sharing my love for history, I decided to do a series called Throwback Thursday where I highlight a specific part of Peruvian history on a Thursday of course. Enjoy – I hope ya’ll learn something new.
It’s been a minute since I did a Throwback Thursday so I wanted to make sure that I hit you guys with another one. And this time I wanted to highlight my trip to the Museo Larco and the Museo Nacional de Arqueología in Lima a few weeks back and much like my Ancash post, the best way to do that is through pictures of some of the most interesting pieces I saw.
And there you have it, folks — my favorite museum pieces from the Larco and National Archaeology Museum. If you’re ever in Lima and history/archaeology make your heart skip a beat don’t miss out on these two collections!
