About This Project
Ampituna is a large, hilltop settlement rumored to be located between the Chancay and Huaura Valleys in Peru. The goal of this study is to find Ampituna and map it using a GPS and balloon imaging. This study is key for understanding how ancient groups moved and interacted between valleys and also will help local peoples gain a better sense of their histories.
