Ancient Sican (Lambayeque) Human Sacrifice Uncovered in Peru

Nine sacrificed men, between the ages of 25 and 30, have been found in a tomb alongside an ancient metallurgy workshop at the Huaca de la Cruz site in Lambayeque. They also uncovered an elite grave of a Sican leader. The burial would be circa 1200 CE. Ceramic vessels and ceremonial knives were also found at the site.
