World City Histories


Cusco, Peru

1100 A.D.

From 900 to 1200 A.D., before the arrival of the Incas in the 13th century, the Killke people occupied Cusco. Carbon dating of the walled complex outside the city, Saksaywaman, determined that the fortress was built about 1100 A.D. From 1300 on, the Inca occupied and expanded the area. Archaeologists even discovered ruins of an ancient temple in 2008, along with a roadway and aqueduct system.
