Christina A. Conlee

This introductory chapter presents background information on the Nasca region and discusses the Nasca Lines, which are geoglyphs (ground drawings) and the feature for which the area is best known. The geoglyphs were created by the people of the Nasca culture, which was just one of many societies in the long prehistory of the region. A short summary of the historical trajectory of the region is given, and the development of the project at La Tiza is detailed. An outline of the book is presented along with a summary of each chapter.

Keywords:   Nasca lines, geoglyphs, prehistory
