CRANIAL TREPIDATION IN THE CULTURE CHACHAPOYAS


Non alone Chachapoyas stood out in architecture and engineering, they were also skillful surgeons, possibly the initiators of the cranial trepidation, fact that I am evidenced in the year of 1877, in the Archaeological Complex of Great Vilaya, with the discovery on the part of French and ratified in the year 1921 by another investigator also of French nationality that I point out for the first time; that in Peru and in america the trepidation existed for the cauterization technique, starting from a skull coming from Amazons.

Later on they were skulls trepaned in the mausoleum of Revash; in Sacred Tomás' district and in the sarcophaguses of Urre; in Old Luya, both near places to Kuelap. From their discovery in 1842; for Crisostomo Grandson, in Kuelap they have been trepaned several heads, this would confirm that in the Culture Chachapoyas a true school of trepanadores of heads existed and that Kuelap was possibly one of the surgical but important centers.
