Chincheros could go back to 5000 years ago, when the first human groups of the region discovered the great potential that the territory had for the agricultural labors. Its sedentary culture soon made them develop technologies to strengthen the agriculture and increase the food production. With the passage of time, the region was settled by different cultures inhabitants, although just one of them dominated a big part of the territory. The Chancas were this culture, achieving the position as the biggest opponent of the Inca Empire expansion. The warlike history of the Pre-hispanic andean world takes the Chancas and Incas as the main examples since they were confronted for a long period of time, between the 13th and 15th centuries, due to the total control of the region. The conflicts left at the end 22000 chancas and 8000 incas casualties on the battle, being the winner at the end the powerful inca empire.
