1,300-Year-Old Cemetery Found In Lima

The cemetery is near Lima’s main zoo. Four human burials have been found so far. The remains date to 100-650 CE, and belong to the Lima Culture.
A ceramics oven, earthenware, and two spindle whorls were buried with them. The cemetery has artifacts from three civilizations.
The Lima culture people built their first structures in Huaca El Rosal. In 2016, adobe walls and mud floors were discovered in the lower part of the huaca, and the walls of an oven between 400 and 500 AD. The new finds are contemporary with burials found in 2016-17.
