Chavín Civilization | Culture, Economy, Religion & Characteristics

The Chavines were a civilization of ancient Peru that developed between 1200 and 200 BC. It settled around the central Andes, near the Chavín de Huántar archaeological site, present-day Peru.

The Chavín civilization is considered a cultural horizon, due to its influences on cultures that developed later.
