Antaras Nasqueñas Project

Antaras Nasqueñas was one of the projects carried out by Polish researchers within the collaboration agreement between the Center for Precolombian Studies of the University of Warsaw and the Nasca Project of the Italian Studi Center and Ricerche Archeologiche Precolombiane (Brescia, Italy). The purpose of the project was to examine the collection of antaras, discovered at the archaeological site of Cahuachi during the 1994 and 1995 seasons. The Cahuachi collection constitutes one the most valuable archaeological collections of musical instruments worldwide.



Tiwanaku-Kantatallita Archaeological Project (Bolivia)

In 2007 the Center for Pre-Columbian Studies of the University of Warsaw, in cooperation with the Italian Archaeological Mission (Centro Italiano Studi e Ricerche Archeologiche Precolumbine, Brescia), has initiated the research project in the temple of Kantat Hallita (Kantatallita) located at one of the most important archaeological sites in Latin America - Tiwanaku.



Condesuyos Project (Peru)

In 1996 the Center for Pre-Columbian Studies of the University of Warsaw signed a scientific collaboration agreement with the Catholic University of Santa María in Arequipa, initiating the project called Condesuyos. Its principal goal is to elaborate a map of archaeological sites in the area of Coropuna, Solimana and Firura volcanoes (Condesuyos and Castilla provinces, Arequipa Department), along with understanding the character of both the Inca and pre-Inca settlements of the region.




Maucallacta Archaeological Sub-Project (Peru)

The archaeological site of Maucallacta (District of Pampacolca, Province of Castilla, Department of Arequipa) has been investigated by our Center since 1997, initially as part of the Condesuyos Project. In 2006, the Maucallacta sub-project was initiated to focus on exploration and restoration of the site with the purpose of enhancing the scientific and touristic value of this important ceremonial-administrative center.



Muyu Muyu

The project involves research at the Muyu Muyu site, a probable ceremonial center associated with Solimana volcano. A limited prospection was performed there in 2017. In the future, however, excavations on a larger scale are planned, combined with a non-invasive prospection (remote sensing: LiDAR, Ground Penetrating Radar, etc.). This research will verify the ethnohistorical data about Muyu Muyu as a sanctuary of Solimana, as well as allow to reconstruct the chronology of the site and determine its relation with other nearby centers.
