>> A momentous discovery for archeologists in Northwest Peru. Human remains and pottery from the Incan culture have been unearthed from inside a pyramid at the Túcume archeological site, and are said to be more than five hundred years old. In 5 of the 2 dozen tombs exposed, the remains of men holding spiked shells.
Another tomb appears to have been made for a member of the elite because the body was buried on a bed of ceramic pieces and wrapped carefully.>>
> The discovery serves as a reminder of the vast area that the Incan Empire controlled before the Spanish Conquest in the 16th Century. And by studying the human remains and artifacts, archaeologists hope to learn more about the significant Pyramid of the Bees, one of several adobe structures at this site.
