Peru: remains of 227 sacrificed kids found

Aug 28, 2019 09:04 IST

Archeologists in Peru say the 227 bodies they have unearthed from a site used by the pre-Columbian Chimu culture is the biggest-ever discovery of sacrificed children. Archaeologists have been digging since last year at the huge sacrificial site in Huanchaco, a beachside tourist town north of the capital Lima. The children's remains were found in a position facing the sea. Some still had skin and hair. Huanchaco was a site where many child sacrifices took place during the time of the Chimu culture 500 years ago.
