  • This is a work in progress as the excavation is quite new. This is a smaller version of some to the major excavations that are going on in northern Peru. Worth a look.  more »

  • Research work, carried out with dedication and effort has achieved a relevant discovery in the North of our country, with the aim of seeking the essence of our ancestors through various mechanisms, techniques and technologies that allowed such fines, although still a long way to analyze. Excellent and recommended!
