The Paracas Culture was an important pre-Columbian civilization of Ancient Peru, of the period called Superior Formative or Early Horizon, which developed as an adventure in the Paracas peninsula, Pisco province, Ica region, between the years 700 BC. C. and 200 d. C. (Paracas cavernas) Of contemporary activity in part with the Chavín that developed in the north of Peru.
Much of the information on the Paracas activity comes from archaeological excavations and the adventure undertaken in Cerro Colorado ("Paracas-Cavernas") and in Warikayan ("Paracas-Necropolis") by the Peruvian archaeologist Julio C. Tello and his disciple Toribio Mejía Xesspe in the 1920s.
It is currently known that what Tello called "Paracas-Necropolis" belongs to another cultural tradition, the so-called Topará, whose center was located further north, in the Chincha valley.
The Paracas practiced high-quality textiles, in wool and cotton, as well as decorated pottery and elaborate basketry. They also performed cranial trepanations, the purposes of which are still debated.
The Paracas culture is the predecessor of the Nazca culture with which it has an evident cultural affinity; in fact, for many specialists, the final phase of Paracas is actually the initial phase of the Nazca culture.
