Photo of the Week

The archaeological site of Caral (or Caral-Supe) contains the remains of a large settlement of the Norte Chico civilization, and is located about 200 km north of Lima, Peru.  In a recent trip to Peru, the SPI Board visited the famous site, which is dotted with pyramids, the largest of which covers an area nearly the size of four football fields and reaches a height of 60 feet tall! 

Many thanks to John Crary for the photograph.
