Quispisisa Obsidian Source Project

Obsidian from the Quispisisa source was widely distributed in ancient South America. Today dozens of large quarry pits are found in high grassland area in southern Ayacucho at around 4000m asl. In 2012 a research project directed by N. Tripcevich, D. Contreras, and Y. Cavero will focus on the source area and adjacent knapping workshops. Contact us about our field research in 2012.
