The Lambayenque culture, also known as the Sican culture, flourished on the northern coast of Peru between 750 CE and 1375 CE. They seem to have inherited many concepts from both the Wari and Moche cultures. Unlike the Wari and Moche, the Lambayenque were not expansionist, and their kingdom consisted of loosely coupled cities. The Chimu eventually conquered and assimilated them into their culture.
