Comments on 2019-08-08 The Inca

@dgold replied, saying that the Inca had outsourced their ocean trading!

To be a little more specific, the Inca outsourced their Ocean Trading to the Chincha People, who had been established as Ocean traders since round about the start of the Late Intermediate Period (so c. 900 CE). They were absorbed into the Inca Empire in around 1450 CE, but, unlike so many of the other neighbouring civs, their Kingdom enjoyed some independence in the Inca System, probably due to their status as traders and boatbuilders.

Very cool.
