Pre-Inca tomb found in Marchu Picchu Park

Published on June 18th, 2009 | by Admin


Archaeologists working in the Machu Picchu Archaeological Park have uncovered a pre-Inca tomb.

Resident archaeologist Francisco Huaycaya Quispe said that these remains would belong to a woman from the Quillke culture, an indigenous which flourished before the Inca Empire.

According to the archaeologist, this hypothesis is based on the pottery and ruminant and poultry bones found at the site.
