Chavín de Huántar Archaeological Acoustics Project
The Chavín de Huántar Archaeological Acoustics Project seeks to explore the acoustics and instruments of Chavín de Huántar, a pre-Inca ritual center in the north-central sierra of Peru. The site complex includes an extensive underground network of labyrinthine corridors, shafts, and drains built of stone block, intact and primarily without post-period modification since the end of monumental construction around 600 B.C. The project has several aims: to measure, analyze, archive, and model the acoustics of Chavín, culminating in simulations for public interface and archaeological research tools.
