Peruvian archaeologists have unearthed six mummies and some ceramic pieces in the county’s most important archaeological site in the north of the Bay of Ancon.
The Peruvian team of archaeologists say the discoveries belong to the Chancay culture, and are about 1000 years old. There are also eight whole vessels among the discovered material together with 12 kilos of other fragmented stuff.
Researchers believe the new findings will help them investigate domestic architecture used by the ancient inhabitants of Ancon. The Chancay were a pre-Columbian archeological civilization developed between the valleys on the central coast of Peru.
