Background
Site DescriptionTambo Colorado was a strategic Inca center, dominating access to the Inca road leading to the highlands and eventually to the Inca capital in Cuzco. Comparing the state of the complex today with the documents from the original excavations 100 years ago, it is obvious that it has suffered considerable deterioration and damage during the past century. The detailed digital documentation of the site captured by the CyArk and University of California at Berkeley teams is being used to support current archaeological and architectural research at Tambo Colorado.
Project DescriptionDuring four field seasons from 2001 to 2005, a team from the University of California, Berkeley in partnership with the Tecnologie Applicate ai Beni Culturali (ITABC) in Rome, conducted documentation at the Incan administrative center of Tambo Colorado, Peru. The detailed digital documentation of the site, collected through survey, LiDAR and photogrammetry, was used to support archaeological and architectural research at Tambo Colorado. The research was partially funded by the Kacyra Family Foundation and UC Berkeley.
