Successors to the Chim gold workers and the Tiwanaku lake people, the Incas ruled the most spectacular empire South America has ever seen. The so-called Land of the Sun God was bright with treasure houses of precious metals, the most fabulous clothes and huge stone buildings. A variety of step-by-step projects enable you to bring this past age to life - beat on an Inca drum, make a model granary, and recreate a Chim√∫ ceremonial knife. The illustrations include cross-sections, historical maps, building constructions and a pictorial timeline, making this an ideal introduction to South American history, for study, reference and practical learning.
