food and supplies
stored for the Inka empire?
The Inka built thousands of colcas throughout their empire. Round or rectangular in shape, these one-room storehouses were built of flagstones with thatch roofs. Groups of them were often built in rows. The engineering and location of the colcas helped keep the contents dry and cool. Potatoes, corn, quinoa, tools, clothing, and weapons were typical contents stored in colcas.
