Sican tomb unearthed in Peru


Archaeologists have unearthed an ancient tomb which they believe is from the Sican culture in Peru.

The burial seems to belong to someone very important from the Lambayeque elite, approximately from the 12th century after Christ.

The researchers hope that the find will help them to learn more about the life of this person.
