Welcome to the Proyecto de Investigación Arqueológico Regional Ancash!  Founded in 2009, PIARA is a research and development project in the highland Andes of Huaylas, Ancash Peru.  Our mission is both to conduct archaeological investigations that reveal the rich prehistory of the region and to co-create development projects in the rural Quechua-speaking communities in which we work.  These goals allow us to not only accomplish important scientific research but also work in equal partnership with our host communities to create sustainable solutions for economic, educational, healthcare and wellness needs.

Please enjoy browsing our website to find out more about current PIARA projects and discover ways you can participate in or contribute to our 2014 projects.
