Sacred Spaces and Human Sacrifice: The Nasca Lines in their Cultural and Religious Context
Start Date: 3/11/2014Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 3/11/2014End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description
Dr. Christina Conlee
Professor of Anthropology
Texas State University
Dr. Christina Conlee will present a lecture on the Nasca Lines of southern Peru, which have long been an enigma for archaeologists and lay people alike. Many theories have been proposed about what they were used for and why they were constructed. In the last 20 years archaeologists have learned much more about the ancient Nasca people and we are now able to understand the lines as an important part of their religion. These were sacred places where ceremonies were performed and offerings were made to ensure fertility and the continuation of society.
