Major Wari-Inca Temple Find in Peru

Archaeologists in Peru, working at the Espiritu Pampa site in the Cusco region, have uncovered an astronomical observatory, massive stone walls, ceramics and other Wari and Inca artifacts at the site. The D-shaped temple found at the site looks Wari in design. A smaller structure inside the temple appears to be an observatory. Two spaces within contained animal teeth, Wari style ceramic bottles, a silver chest piece and a silver crown. Inca architecture lies next to the temple, housing Inca pins, needles and pottery. The pieces will be studied further.

Andina has the report here with many good photos of the finds;
