We are pleased to announce the publication of a book "The Chiribaya Culture from the Tambo Valley" co-financed by the Foundation for Landscape Protection. This book constitutes a vital input of the Polish science into the investigation of the Chiribaya culture of the pre-Columbian Peru.

Based on own field research held in El Pino in southern Peru, the author describes little known Chiribaya groups who populated the Tambo river valley between 6th and 15th century CE. The book includes the most complete, diversified catalogue of Chiribaya ceramics.

The specialised magazine "Archeologia Żywa" considered the discoveries of several Chiribaya tombs containing mummified human remains and numerous funerary equipment in perfect condition as one of two most important achievements of Polish archeology in 2010. The research has been widely recognised both in Peru and Poland.
