Huari civilization of South America

Huari represents one of the few civilizations that were actually lost from history records only to be rediscovered by archaeologists centuries later.

From its home in the central highlands of Peru, Huari spread out to control an empire that spanned two thirds of the Peruvian Andes, stretching from the Moquegua Valley in the south to the Cajamarca Valley in the north.
Ceramic evidence suggest that Cotocotuyoc was primary a late Middle Horizon Huari settlement. The location and many stone implements, some of which may have served as weapons, such as axes and bolas, indicate that the site may have had a defensive component.

Huari militarism, statecraft and engineering are thought to represent antecedents of the alter Inca Empire.
