Located south of the Aztec and Maya in the Andean Mountain range of Peru, the Inca were a great civilization who formed an empire that would eventually become the largest in pre-Columbian America. The term “Pre-Columbian” is simply a term that refers to civilizations that existed in the time before Christopher Columbus. The Inca did not build cities and the population was essentially rural with small villages and towns, usually housing less than 1,000 people. The Inca Empire lasted from around 1100 until the Spanish conquest in the 1530′s.
