Defense and recovery of Peru's cultural heritage

By Espinosa Bellido Abogados - 21/09/2020

Peru’s Foreign Affairs Ministry recovered a group of 65 pieces which belong to the Cultural Heritage of the Nation. The pieces had been repatriated by Peruvian Embassies in Australia, Spain, and the United Kingdom, as well as the Consulates General in Hartford and San Francisco (the United States).

Among the repatriated batch of objects, there is an unku —a traditional pre-Hispanic clothing from the Chancay Culture— which was recovered in Australia. Likewise, it includes a set of archaeological goods recovered through a second voluntary return by the Museum of Anthropology at the University of California-Berkeley consisting of valuable objects from Chancay, Pisquillo, Chimu, Pativilca, Huaura, Chuquibamba, Wari, and Inca Cultures.

The cultural assets —repatriated and delivered to the Culture Ministry— reaffirm the commitment of the Peruvian State and its citizens to the defense and recovery of the memory of Peru —a diverse memory that also constitutes one of the foundations of the nation's identity.
