Huaynaputina FACEdit


is anyone interested in reviewing this discussion which deals with volcanoes, Peru and climate change? It's in danger of being archived for lack of input. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk) 17:33, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

Commons categories Lambayeque culture and Sicán identical?Edit

While trying to sort some files on Commons into appropriate categories, I stumbled across the category pair Lambayeque culture and Sicán. Do they both describe the same pre-columbian culture / the same concept? According to the Wikipedia Article on Sicán, both names are used synonymously. If yes, I think it would be useful to merge them (keeping one of both as redirect). Guessing by the references on Sican culture (Q175801), "Sicán" seems to be preferable. Is this correct? Thanks for any hints and feedback! Fl.schmitt (talk) 09:45, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

@Fl.schmitt: "Lambayeque culture" and "Sicán culture" are interchangeable, per page 7 of Lambayeque: nuevos horizontes de la arqueología peruana:

El estudio de la cultura que se desarrolló en el departamento de Lambayeque entre el ocaso de Moche y la conquista Chimú no escapa a los problemas epistemológicos arriba mencionados, por lo que el lector interesado encontrará no solo modelos interpretativos distintos, sino también un léxico diferente. El arqueólogo estadounidense de origen japonés Izumi Shimada, seguido por varios otros estudiosos, ha introducido el nombre "cultura Sicán", mientras que otro grupo de investigadores no menos nutrido permanece fiel al término "cultura Lambayeque". Ambos grupos se refieren por supuesto al mismo cuerpo de evidencias y al mismo fenómeno cultural del pasado prehispánico.

As alluded to above, Izumi Shimada led the Sicán Archaeological Project and introduced the term "Sicán culture". However, the first sentence in the Preface of his book Cultura Sicán says la cultura Sicán, también más conocida como Cultura Lambayeque ("the Sicán culture, also better known as Lambayeque Culture"). Shimada also referred to the site of es:Batán Grande as "Sicán". Avoiding confusion between the Batán Grande site and the culture it belonged to may be why nowadays "Lambayeque culture" seems to be slightly preferred. For example, the Museo Larco uses Lambayeque, and the Met usually uses "Lambayeque (Sicán)" and occasionally just "Lambayeque".
My suggestion would be to make Sicán a disambiguation page linking to Lambayeque culture and Batán Grande. Cobblet (talk) 13:55, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
@Cobblet: Thanks a lot, this is very helpful for me - I will adapt the commons categories as proposed. Fl.schmitt (talk) 18:50, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
You're welcome! I'll further note that Sicán should not be confused with the nearby Moche site of Sipán, also known as Huaca Rajada, which is where the remains of the Lord of Sipán were discovered. Cobblet (talk) 19:32, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

Inca Chucu culture??Edit

Pre-Columbian Inca Chucu Painted Stone Plaque, 1000 -1500 CE

I uploaded this one today. Inca Chucu culture is described as from "southern Peru, Inca hinterlands (Chucu)." If any reader knows anything about the Inca Chucus, please comment or PM me. See talk page for that image for info on more of these. Quite a few floating around in the usual places, some on terra cotta. Thanks in advance, Pete Tillman (talk) 17:29, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
