The Moche culture

Within the web ¨History of Peru¨  you can find the following article about the Moche culture:

Mochica culture, also called the Moche culture, is a pre-Columbian culture that spread along the north coast of Peru, approximately between 100 AD to 700 AD and was a contemporary civilization to the Nazca culture that occupied the southern coast of Peru. The Moche are located chronologically between  the Chavin culture (Early Horizon) and Chimu culture (Late Horizon). Historically  they belong to the period called the “The master craftsmen” or “great builders of cities”, which lasted until 700 AD. The name indicates the industrious and creative nature of this society, which has such beautiful pottery portraying everyday life and religious beliefs of the time, and whose goldsmiths amazed even the Incas. Theories of this culture are now changing due to the discovery of archaeological sites,  such as Mrs. Cao and Lord of Sipan (Lord of Sipan),  discovered at Sipan near Chiclayo. The cause of the disappearance of the Mochica circa 600-700 is unknown, but could have been started by a 30-year drought in the late sixth century, followed by a period of flooding caused by the El Niño phenomena (identified by meteorologists in the thickness of ice in the Andes) and ended by the invasion forces of the Huari empire. The decline of the Moche was a general shift balance of power in Peru from the north coast to the southern highlands.
