A meeting with Sofia Chacaltana. She is a good scientist that studies ancient andean cultures in relation to the contemporary times. She is a archaeologist and a antropologist, a very healthy combination. With her we were talking about the public spaces that Andean communities had. What meaning and functions they could have provided, were the spaces changing according to the seasons, what were average measurements in villages and bigger settlements. One of the important things that she taught us today is, That every reality has something under the surface from the past. In the case of Lima she explained that the whole historic centre (where the central government, the parliament and cityhall is seated today) we recognize now as Colonial hertitage, is actually built upon preHispanic foundations. So it was not a new beginning, the founding of Lima in 1532. Also there was a whole system of irrigation, that today is still present in the urban plan. We have been looking at several old cityplans of Lima, trying to understand the present by looking into the past.
More to come....
