"Within four centuries the Inca family expanded from rulers of part of a small town to a semi-divine tribe of which the head, the Sapa Inca, ruled an immense empire, which they termed Tahuantinsuyu, the Four Quarters, to imply that their father the sun god destined them to rule the entire known earth. In the mid-11th century, about the time of the Norman Conquest of Britain, a family of American Indians came from the Esat and ascended the mountains into a civilized country which had broken up into warring tribal groups... They were allowed to rule half of the town which they now named The Cuzco, and although they were respected because of the mystery of their origin, it was not until the reign of their great-grandson that the Incas ruled the whole of the town. This must have been in the first half of the 12th century of our era. At the time of the Inca arrival Peru was divided... "

"In a series of outstanding raids and unexpected attacks the Inca forces destroyed the Chanca confederacy and Inca Viracocha found himself in command of all the mountain tribes around Cuzco. In another generation the Incas spread their rule over the whole Peruvian part of the Andes, including the sacred though ruined ancient city of Tiahuanaco... The Chimu were permitted to worship their own gods, but every temple had to support an oratory to the sun which made it quite clear that his children, the Incas, were the real rulers of the country... The capture of the Chimu kingdom made the Inca masters of all the civilized areas of Peru... the Spaniards arrived. In a short campaign they captured Atahuallpa, and murdered him; but not before he had Huascar, the true heir, killed. Thus in 1533 fell the divine sun kingdom of the Incas. "

(1970), pg. 1423. "At the time of the Inca arrival Peru was divided. The mountain peoples were heirs to three previous empires. The earliest originated around Chavin de Huantar well before 1000 BC and its characteristic art styles enable archeologists to show how it dominated much of the northern part of the Peruvian Adnes. It has a close artistic relationship with the peoples of the more southerly part of the Peruvian Coast around the Paracas Peninsula, where there was a typically Peruvian [religious tradition] of the dead... A slightly later development of this religious art centred arond Nasca on the southern half of the Peruvian Coats and was expressed in the creation of beautifully painted pottery, which in the early centuries AD included the first near realist figures of human beings in Peru.

"The people of the highlands seem to have developed separately and by the 6th century AD formed into two rather similar groups around the northern city of Huari and the famous southern one of Tiahuanaco near Lake Titicaca. In the 8th century people defeated the tribes around Nasca and imposed their culture upon them. But the conquest did not last, and eventually Tiahuanaca itself fell in some catastrophe beyond our knowledge. Similarly the Huari power broke up. "
