This reusable guide covers 1200-1533 and such key people as Manco Capac, Pachacuti, Francisco Pizarro, and Hernán Cortéz. It is to be used in conjunction with the Inca Empire Jar (EDU 018). The Inca ruled the territory along the western coast of South America. They were a highland warrior people that enjoyed a simple and functional way of life. Their cities were carefully planned to harmonize with the landscape. With no written records of history before the Spanish conquest, much of what we know about Incan civilization is learned by studying their pottery. The pottery had utilitarian and ceremonial purposes, and were used as burial offerings. Inca pottery are distinct and recognizable. They are made with graceful and symmetrical shapes, a painted, polished surface, and typically with a rounded base. Inca designs were often geometric and conventional. These designs include diamonds, repeating squares, checkers, cross-hatching, rows of triangles, circles, dots, and parallel lines.
