Archeologists Excavate 1000 Year-Old Tombs in Northern Peru

Hosted by

Archaeologists working in Peru announced yesterday that they have made an important find, a complex of tombs that casts new light on the Sicán culture, which pre-dates the Incas. The excavations, about 400 miles northwest of Lima, were launched by an anthropology professor at Southern Illinois University and the director of Perú's Sicán National Museum.
