What you'll do

We will travel in time to 500 years ago placing ourselves in the Inca Empire. Like all human beings, the ancient Peruvians also had the need to record their experiences in a very interesting system called Quipu, which was a accounting system and also record information system through knots and levels in textile. In our workshop we will talk about the history of the Incas and the ways of recording information in ancient Peru. You will learn in a practical workshop to tie up information just as the Incas did. We will talk about the value of each of the types of knots and the background of this Inca history. We will also discuss what would be the way to read and what it would mean today for our contemporary researchers.
