Ai Apaec "The Decapitator", Moche culture, Peru

The pyramids and temples of Caral, in Peru. Construction possibly began as early as 3500 BC meaning these pre-Incan peoples got the jump on Egypt by half a millennium. The truly remarkable part is that they began their civilization not on agriculture but on seafood which was in rich supply. Pan-Andean traditions such as the love of weaving and fiber and certain deities were established at this very early period, a level of continuity matched only by China. Approx 3300 BC. Artist unknown.

Probably originating from the area beyond the Black Sea, the Hittites first occupied central Anatolia, making their capital at Hattusa (modern Bogazköy). Early kings of the Hittite Old Kingdom, such as Hattusilis I (reigned c. 1650-c. 1620 BC), consolidated and extended Hittite control over much of Anatolia and northern Syria. Hattusilis' grandson Mursilis I raided down the Euphrates River to Babylon, putting an end (c. 1590 BC) to the Amorite dynasty there.
