HISTORY & ARCHAEOLOGY

Colombia – a country associated with colour, natural beauty, tropical warmth and endless bounty. These attributes have, throughout history, attracted humans to its shores with a dream of life and plenty. Throughout tens of thousands of years Colombia has been home to numerous peoples distributed over its broken and rugged geography. These isolated cultures evolved and adapted to their unique surroundings, in some cases thriving and leaving an indelible mark.

Thankfully, some of the remnants of these ancient societies have survived, leaving us in awe as to their advanced methods, delicate intricacies and symbolic importance to the people who created them. The Colombian Project has pioneered Colombia’s only historical and archaeological tour in one of the continent’s most historically important yet least studied countries. We’ve been able to gather some of the country’s top experts in their respective fields such as anthropology, colonial history, archaeology, sociology and archaeobotany, all working together to give an unprecedented insight into their chosen topics – the statues of San Agustin, the mysterious, captivating rock art of the Amazon basin, the ancient Tayrona or Spanish Colonial Cartagena to name but a few.

Our experts are conducting ongoing studies which, excitingly, you can become a part of. During your visit Colombia’s deep and diverse story will start to emerge, as we explore its wonderful pre-Hispanic and Spanish colonial history across the country, in various settings, from the humid forests of the Amazon, to the temperate forests and mountains of the Andes, to the dry tropical forests of the Caribbean coast. For well-read and inquisitive travelers, Colombia is a paradise which will leave you yearning for more.
