Wari Pottery
The image shows pottery belonging to the Wari culture that flourished from 500 CE to 1000 CE in the south central and coastal region of Peru. The pots are on display at Museo Larco in Lima, Peru.

Experts believe that the Wari were the inventors of the terrace agriculture, which was later improved by the Incas who employed new techniques, including the use of aqueducts in water management. The Wari also pioneered the concept of centralized administration and built a network of roads to help control their empire. The Incas later used this network and extended it to govern their empire from a central place.
