Archaeologists from a Belgian university have uncovered a mass burial tomb containing the remains of 80 individuals at the Pachacamac ruins in Peru.
The site, situated 20 miles south of Lima, is currently under review for UNESCO World Heritage status, and is one of the largest and most important pre-Hispanic sites in South America.
It was first settled around AD 200 and ruled over by the Ychsma (pronounced eesh-ma) lords from AD 900 until it was taken over by the Inca around 1470.
Funny thing is the wooden heads. Would seem to represent war trophies, but are the heads actually missing? They speculate some of the infants may be sacrifices, but I suppose they may just be the usual array of dead kids from high mortality.
