Diego de Almagro was born in Almagro, Spain in the year 1475. He was the son of Juan de Montenegro, but was considered an illegitimate child. As a result, he most likely spent his childhood with other relatives. He was put to work in the fields until about age fifteen; this meant that he received no schooling whatsoever. At a fairly young age he set off to seek his fortune, but instead he became a wanderer and ended up killing a man in a brawl. Afterwards, he made the decision to enter the Spanish Navy. Though the years in which he served in the navy are unrecorded, it is probable that he stayed in service for a considerable amount of time before he left the country to join an expedition to Central America.
The achievements of the Incas were founded on the cultures of earlier Peruvian peoples that previously resided in the highlands of the Andes and on the Peruvian coast. These predecessors include the Chavin and the Moche civilizations. The latter in particular thrived between 100 and 800 C.E. along the northern coast of Peru. The Moche were able to use the rivers flowing out of the Andes to their advantage and create advanced irrigation systems to develop their agriculture. Each of their valleys housed a grand ceremonial center complete with pyramids and palaces surrounded by various communities of up to ten thousand. Moche artifacts display an exceptional amount of skill in pottery and metalwork, some of which include ceramic vessels and headdresses.

This role has diminished through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, but the need to be masculine remains in countless men. Makeup, tights, and ballet shoes are not considered manly. Therefore, a subsequent stereotype has become prevalent. Persistently, people erroneously believe all danseurs to be gay, weak, and feminine. Frequently, male dancers are left to feel inadequate and are discouraged from their art because their manliness is questioned. Yet, the 2000 film, Billy Elliot, juxtaposes the stereotype of male ballet dancers with a titular character who defies all expectations. The man’s historical role as provider and protector causes men in professions such as ballet to be considered effeminate; however, a man with a profession in the arts is no less masculine than the majority of males and can be just as prosperous as any other man.
