Three Tombs with remains and artifacts of the elite Mochica were unearthed in an archaeological complex known as the huaca of El Pueblo de Ucupe, in Lambayeque’s city of Chiclayo, as archaeologist Walter Alva announced in footage from Friday.

A team of experts from the Tumbas Reales de Sipan Museum made the discovery, which comprises three funerary chambers, built with adobe bricks. The tombs revealed ceramic offerings and copper ornaments, such as pectorals and crowns.

The funerary site, whose excavations began on December 17, 2018, date back to the Middle Moche period (600-700 years after Christ).
