Significant Wari Temple Excavated in Peru

An international team of archaeologists in Peru have uncovered an ancient Wari temple with a D-shaped temple and Wari influenced ceramics and textiles in southern Peru. The dig is uncovering material spanning 200 BCE-1000 CE. The Wari culture covered the south-central Andes from the highlands to the coast, with administrative centers, terraced agriculture and a huge network of roads. Excavations at the site will continue into 2015.
