to arrive in Guayaquil in February. Throughout 1821 Sucre was unable to take Quito, and by November both sides were exhausted and signed a 90-day armistice. The following year, at Battle of Pichincha on May 24, 1822, Sucre's Venezuelan forces finally conquered Quito. The territory of Gran Colombia was secure. The main focus now became neutralizing the formidable royalist base in Peru. thumb right The Spanish Historical Center in Quito (File:Quito-San Diego-01.jpg), Ecuador Ecuador was inhabited with numerous civilizations which constructed the ethnic cultural background of Ecuador years before the Inca Empire.Many civilizations rose throughout Ecuador, such as the Chorre and the Valdivia Culture Valdivia , the latter of which spans its existence before any civilization in the Americas. The most notable groups that existed in Ecuador before, and during the Inca conquest were the Quitus (near present-day Quito), the Cañari (in present-day Cuenca (Cuenca, Ecuador)), and the Las Vegas Culture (near Guayaquil). Each civilization developed its own distinguished architecture, pottery, and religious beliefs, while others developed archaeologically disputed systems of writing (an achievement the Incas did not achieve). After years of fierce resistance, the Cañari succumbed to the Inca expansion, and were assimilated loosely under the Inca Empire. The Inca (Inca people) were an advanced society which originated in Peru, and established a great empire within one century. It dominated Peru and extended as far as Bolivia and central Chile, as well as Ecuador. To communicate with each other they developed stone-paved highways spanning thousands of miles used by messengers. These messengers passed each other records of the empire's status, which are sometimes thought to have been encoded in a system of knots called ''quipu''. Remarkably, the Cañari, Quitus, and Caras were able to hold back ''Tupac-Yupanqui'' for years, though they proved less successful against his son, Huayna Capac. After conquering Ecuador, Huayna Capac imposed upon the tribes the use of the Quechua (or ''Kichwa'') language, ''lingua franca'' of the Inca and still widely spoken in Ecuador. The Cañaris were the strongest, and fiercest group in Ecuador to fall, and after their collapse and subsequent assimilation, the conquest of lands north became easier. The origin of the Anostomidae can be quite confidently placed in the Paleogene, and somewhat less securely in late Paleogene, based on various evidence. For one thing, the biogeography of the family, with some very basal taxa found west of the Andes, indicates that it was already well distinct when the northern part of that mountain range uplift (Tectonic uplift)ed at the end of the Middle Miocene about 12 million years ago (mya). Then, there is some scant but highly informative fossil evidence assigned to this family: a premaxillary tooth was found in the Colombian Villavieja Formation "La Venta formation" in Sidlauskas & Vari (2008) is the old name. and dated to the Laventan age about 13.5-11.5 mya, while some pharyngeal teeth and other jaw parts found near Cuenca, Ecuador in the Cuenca basin (Cuenca basin (geology)) (a structural basin Pan American Race Walking Cup Cuenca (Cuenca, Ecuador), Ecuador bgcolor "gold" 1st '''Estadio Alejandro Serrano Aguilar''' is a multi-purpose stadium in Cuenca, Ecuador.
