4,000 year-old tenon heads discovered in Ancash, Peru

Authorities in Peru have announced the discovery of a number of tenon heads, some believed to be 4,000 years old.

According to the Mayor of Huaylas district, Jose Espinoza Caballero, these ancient stone carvings were found in the Chupacoto town and would be older than the famous tenon heads of Chavin de Huantar Archaeological Complex.

He noted that the discovery shows the district’s great tourist and scientific potential, as it is considered as “the centre of the Huaylas Culture.”
