About this product
- DescriptionThe Inkan empire did not have writing as it is usually understood. The Inkas kept track of information - including their complex social and political organization - on khipus, knotted cords of cotton or wool. This book presents an argument for a close intrinsic link between rituals and visual sign-systems.
- Author BiographyFrank Salomon is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
