Bandelier, whom we have already mentioned in the previous chapter, was also interested in working in Tiwanaku (Fischer 2010:54) and, in fact, had been commissioned by amnh for this purpose (Loza 2004:155). Both of these larger-than-life personalities maintained a cordial relationship but were critical of each other’s work, especially because both were out to collect materials for their respective museum’s collections. Toward the end of 1894 and in 1895, Uhle spent most of his time working in the Bolivian altiplano, concentrating on the shores and islands of Lake Titicaca (Loza 2004:155).
