Welcome to PIARA!  

The Proyecto de Investigación Arqueológico Regional Ancash, or "PIARA", is a research and heritage preservation project in the highland Andes of Huaylas, Ancash Peru. Our mission is threefold: to conduct archaeological investigations that reveal the rich prehistory of the region; to co-create heritage and development projects with the Quechua-speaking communities whose past we investigate; and to educate the next generation of archaeologists.

Find out more about current PIARA projects and discover how you can participate by browsing our website and watching the videos below.
