This chapter focuseson the archaeology that was conducted at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru. The 1990s was dominated by the government of Alberto Fujimori, who was democratically elected as president of the Republic of Peru in 1990 and, almost from the beginning of his mandate, established a neoliberal economic model for the Peruvian state. The work of Carlos Ivan Degregori provides an excellent analysis of this period in recent Peruvian history. Paralleling the changes in the structure of the Peruvian state, there were radical ruptures in the role of the public universities. San Marcos was traditionally a place to reflect on and critique the political and social situation in the country. In 1992, the San Marcos University was deeply troubled. In fact, a year earlier Fujimori personally visited the campus, also known as Ciudad Uni-versitaria. At San Marcos University, the political apathy on the left was rampant in the student body.
