This Peruvian-American cooperative study of paleopathology of the pre-Columbian Peruvian cultures of Southern Peru began in 1971. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the medical and dental health status of these cultures which date from 600 BC to the Spanish conquest. While several authors such as Leigh, Moodie, Stewart, and Goaz and Miller have studied the dental morphology of Northern Peruvians, the paleodontology and oral paleopathology of the Southern Peruvians has not been recorded. This paper reports dental findings on the morphologic characteristics of the shovel-shaped incisor, Carabelli’s cusp, and protostylid.
