MOCHE, Inc. only hires highly qualified staff to run our programs. Our field school is operated by bilingual graduate students from around the US and Peru. Crew chiefs are all currently graduate students in archaeology and the field school is co-directed by Dr. Brian Billman of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Jesus Briceño of the Ministerio del Cultura (Peru’s Ministry of Culture) and Dr. Alicia Boswell (Bard Graduate Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art). Most staff members have spent years working in Peruvian archaeology and many have spent many summers working on the MOCHE-UNC field school. For more information please email Brian Billman or Alicia Boswell .
The field school is based in Huanchaco, a pleasant fishing village and beach resort just a few kilometers outside of Trujillo, the third largest city in Peru. The field site is located in Huanchaco.
