3,500-Year-Old Friezes Discovered At Huaca Garagay In Lima, Peru

Archaeologists have found 3,500-year-old high relief polychrome friezes —similar to those of Chavin de Huantar— at Huaca Garagay site in Lima. They appear to be older than the Chavin Culture. The Huaca had been abandoned for 30 years.

The report is short but the photos are great.
