In the Andes region of South America, many complex cultures emerged and developed prior to the arrival of the Spaniards in the 16th century. Of these, the Inca culture was the last to emerge and is today the most famous. In the 15th century, the Inca empire, Tawantinsuyu (“The four suyu”), stretched from southern Colombia to central Chile. A stretch of more than 5,500 km, making it the largest empire in the New World. The Forgotten Amazon has in addition to the Incas also focused on the less famous Chachapoyas culture. The Chachapoyas people are known from the Spanish sources, in which they are described as being a rebellious people who have repeatedly been in open rebellion against the Inca rule. The archeological site of Posic is located near the province of Chachapoyas in the northeastern highlands of Peru. We are in the Amazon region where the landscape today, as then, consists of an impassable mix of mountains, dense rainforests, rivers and bogs.
