Lecture: “Ritual Regalia of the Ancient Moche” feat. Alicia Boswell – Nov. 12, 3:00 PM

Archaeology Society of Staten Island & Wagner College Lecture
“Ritual Regalia of the Ancient Moche”
Dr. Alicia Boswell
In the last thirty years archaeological investigations on the north coast of Peru have produced a wealth of new information leading to nuances in our understanding of Moche sociopolitical organization (AD 200-800). These discoveries have included excavations of intact tombs of Moche male and female elites, interred with their ritual regalia and other grave goods. Metal ornaments made up an important part of this regalia, yet our understanding of Moche metallurgy technology and production remains under explored. This presentation presents current research on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection on Moche metal regalia, its production, presentation, and significance in the Moche world.
