1200-year-old royal tomb found in Peru

The tomb of a Sican ruler which dates back 1,200 years, has been found in the Las Ventanas archaeological zone in Peru.

One of the most interesting objects found is a bottle representing the funerary bundle that it accompanies, since both are facing toward the southwest corner of the temple, which represents “a noteworthy symbolic connection,” the scientist said.

Also discovered was a gilded copper crown with an attachment of jaguars — with typical pendants worn by the elite in that region — a mask with winged eyes, spearpoints and arrowheads, among other artifacts.
