Archaeologists have discovered a 1,000-year-old tomb 20 miles south of the Peruvian capital Lima.

It contains the cloth-covered skeletal remains of over 70 people - most of them thought to be children.

The 60-ft-long grave is linked to the 'Painted Temple' where the Huari people used to pray to Pacha Kamaq - their God of Creation.
