The 3,000-year-old remains of 5 people from the Marcavalle culture have been unearthed in Cusco, Peru.

Also found at the site, belonging to around 1,000 B.C., were ancient artifacts, including tools made from obsidian and camelid bones, ceramic fragments bearing artistic motifs known to be associated with the Marcavalle culture, and beaded necklaces.

Archaeologists say what lends significance to the discovery is that no human remains dating back to the Marcavalle culture have ever been found before.
