Mochica Elite Female Unearthed at Lambayeque, Peru
The body was found at the site of Huaca Santa Rosa de Pucala in Lambayeque. The body dates to 900-1000 CE. The body was in an adobe walled chamber with a roof held up by carob beams, and it contained 204 pots, metal objects, decorated face neck jars, and a male companion. It is in the Mochica style despite being past the time of the Moche. This is a surprising feature.
