Señores del pasado: arqueólogos, museos y huaqueros en el Perú

by Raúl H. Asensio

This volume discusses a social history of how archaeological monuments in Peru became a valuable national item, how archaeology and "patrimonialismo" legitimize each other projecting a heroic image of the past for society to consume. The author discusses the unique role archaeologist, archaeological museums, and "huaqueros" (looters) have played since the 19th century. In Spanish.
