One of the 12 graves was believed to be that of a important person because his skeletal remains were placed inside a large funerary urn along with 10 metal, ceramic and stone objects, Concha Olivera said.
Surrounding the urn were three graves of children who may have been sacrificed and another of a woman who could have been the man’s wife, all located alongside a stone incense burner.
Most of the graves were found inside the earthen enclosures, while the others were found underneath patios, stairs and footpaths, Concha Olivera said.
