Although this empire existed way back in 1493, it was not backward but complex and well organized.
The empire was ruled by the Sapa Inca, lord of the world, son of the sun. He owned everything in the empire-the land, soil, gold and even the people. The people, therefore, had no freedom.
Boys and girls were to live a life of obedience, and tradition. They began working in their ayllu or family groups. The rule was ama sua, ama illua, ama shekila, which means, “do not steal, do not lie, do not be lazy”
Despite this difficult way of life, the Incas were very skilful. They constructed drainage system and underground water reservoirs. Their buildings were made from huge stones. These were cut to fit perfectly together so that no mortar was needed. Their rope bridges were so strong that even horse could gallop across them.
The Incas had no written language. Information was recorded on knotted strings called quipus. These were also used as calculators. Strong and healthy young boys were chosen as chasquis or courier to carry messages from one place to another.
