Ancient tomb found in Peru’s capital
Friday 25 October 2013
An archaeological site in the midst of Peru’s bustling capital has yielded yet another pre-Incan prize, an undisturbed tomb containing two corpses wrapped in ceremonial fabric, archeologists said yesterday.
The tomb, estimated to be more than 1,000 years old and dating from the Wari period, was found at the Pucllana archaeological site in Lima. It contained the bodies of an adult and an infant, along with artifacts. The Wari civilisation was active in an area that now contains Lima from 600 to 1,000 AD.
Seventy Wari tombs have been unearthed at the site, But Gladys Paz, the head archaeologist of the team that found the tomb, said “In terms of big discoveries, this is in the top three”.
