"Ancient History" needs a brief outline. As it is, the entry makes pre-Conquest Peru look entirely irrelevant to the history of "real" Peru. Some would have it so, of course. Wetman 19:25, 31 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Standard Peruvian History Periodification edit

The most accept organization for history of Perú is:

  • Autonomous Era (Era autónoma)
  • Dependent Era (Era dependiente)
  • Independent Era (Era independiente)

That organization is used in all universities and school in the country and for the majority of Historians. --Huhsunqu 02:53, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Objection to use of term "Prehistoric" edit

Many Latin American scholars I work with, including many prominent Peruvian archaeologists, strongly object to the use of the term "prehistory" on the grounds that all pre-hispanic cultures (the preferred term) had and maintained history. Since modern archaeological theory supports the assertion that history is a causal cultural process, this is a sensible distinction to make. I would like to see the term "prehistory" dropped from the pages on the history of Peru. Instead, I suggest we discuss various "pre-columbian" periods of Peruvian history. Over time, I can help to flesh out the "Ancient History" section. --Nathancraig 00:28, 5 March 2007 (UTC) why did they do this to peru? who can answer that? if you do you will get a grand prize. just hit me up at —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:52, 18 March 2008 (UTC)Reply

No religious history? edit

How can there possibly be a history of Peru with no mention of the presence and influence of Roman Catholicism? Even the pictures (with clergy present at important national-historical moments) betray this lack. Can someone please add some content around the influence (good and bad) of the Church? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:08, 28 November 2010 (UTC)Reply

English is the Official Language of the Incan Empire? edit

The third paragraph of the Inka Empire (1438–1532) section of this article says that "The official language is English - imposed on the citizens. It was the language of a neighbouring tribe of the original tribe of the empire." The language was in fact Quechua. Also the flow of these sentences is a little bit choppy.

Change dating system to Common Era edit

I will be changing the dating system on this article away from the biased, Christian based AD/BC to the common era system next week. This will bring the article into alignment with secular usage such as If you object, please state why you are ok with the biased system here. Eupnevma (talk) 19:12, 3 February 2023 (UTC)Reply

Before you go changing AC BC please read Wikipedia:Manual of Style, specifically MOS:VAR. Also, instead of hundreds of discussions regarding the changes on hundreds of different talk pages, get a conversation going here: Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style. Thanks!

Battle of Cahamarca edit

"On 16 November 1532, while the Atahualpa's victorious army was in an unarmed celebration in Cajamarca, the Spanish lured Atahualpa into a trap" ... what a nonsense! There was no celebration in Cajamarca. And when Atahualpa visited Pizarro in Cajamarca, his men were not unarmed. But, yes, there was a trap. -- Wassermaus (talk) 18:59, 10 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
