Luis Jaime Castillo, Ph.D, is one of the foremost experts on the Moche culture. An archaeologist at Peruâ€™s Catholic University in Lima, he has conducted excavations for the last 20 years, particularly at San Jose de Moro, a remarkable Moche cemetery yielding incredible ancient burial sites. Dr. Castilloâ€™s discovery of the Tombs of the Priestesses in 1991, with their extraordinary richness and complexity, was one of the most significant advances in Peruvian archaeology. He is co-editor of the recently published New Perspectives on Moche Political Organization.
