Charles Stanish was a Professor of Anthropology and director of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA for 20 years, before he served as Executive Director of the Institute for the Advanced Study of Culture and the Environment at the University of South Florida.

Having conducted extensive research into trade, war, and labor organization in human cooperation within prehistoric societies in Peru, Bolivia, and Chile, in this episode Charles explores the astronomical alignments and geoglyphs within Peru’s Chincha and Nazca Valleys.

We learn how emerging ruling classes conducted elaborate open-air theatrical productions within assemblies of mounds, platforms, and geoglyphs. After outlining the underlying archaeoastronomy, Charles explains how dominant classes engaged in competitive feasting, offering pilgrims a ritualized-political spectacle to garner widespread support.

Charles also discusses Cuzco’s controversial ceque system of alignments and shrines, or huacas, demonstrating how his empirical approach to Inca alignments challenges the earlier works of structuralists.

You would be wise to abandon the precepts of western philosophy before entering this ancient world of lost alignments, as we will be following a more diverse form of mind-map based on raw Andean cosmovision, as charted by Professor Charles Stanish.
