A team of archaeologists have discovered the remains of 29 people in northern Peru, including three children, who could help experts rewrite the history of pre-Inca Wari civilization, reports AFP with a reference to researchers.
The bodies buried more than 1,000 years ago were found in the coastal region of Lambayeque, about 750 kilometers north of Lima, according to Edgar Bracamonte, the lead investigator, last Friday. “These discoveries allow us to rethink the history of the region of Lambayeque, in particular the links with the Wari and Mochica civilizations of the region”, declared the specialist.
According to the researcher, the burials of three children and a teenager at the front of the temple suggest that they were human sacrifices from the Wari culture. Likewise, Bracamonte indicated that this is the first time that a discovery associated with this civilization has been made so far from its area of influence.
The Wari culture was a pre-Inca civilization that flourished in the central Andes (now Peru) from around the 7th to 13th centuries.
