Moche can mean the the peoples and culture of the Peruvian north coast kingdom, the river alongside which the culture flourished and the site of the capital. As a culture, they were contemporary with the Nazca civilization further down the coast but, thanks to their conquest of surrounding territories, they were able to accumulate the wealth and power necessary to establish themselves as one of the most unique and important early-Andean cultures. The Moche also expressed themselves in art with such a high degree of aesthetics that their naturalistic and vibrant murals, ceramics, and metalwork are amongst the most highly regarded in the Americas.
