What is happening in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia in 200CE

The Nazca culture continues to flourish, and by this time another coastal civilization, the Moche, is producing impressive urban and religious centres. Major irrigation schemes, inherited from the Gallinazo culture, enable Moche farmers to grow maize and other crops in the desert, and allow a lively and sophisticated culture to flourish. Moche craftsmen produce some of finest pottery and gold work in pre-Columbian America, and Moche art is striking for its realism. Architecturally, the Pyramid of the Sun at Mochica, made of adobe, is a truly impressive structure.
