Archaeologists unearth 3,000-year-old priestly tomb in northern Peru

August 28, 2023

Archaeologists in northern Peru have unearthed a 3,000-year-old tomb which they believe might have honored an elite religious leader in the Andean country some three millennia ago. Two seals were also found along the upper edges of the tomb, one with an anthropomorphic face looking east and another with a jaguar design facing west. "Though this person is a man, the associations are very peculiar," said Seki. "I think this was a leader in his time." Last year's find of the "Priest of the Pututos," however, is believed to be older.
