Archaeologists dig up ancient tomb near Machu Picchu in Peru
Lima (Peru), Dec 1 (ANI): A group of archaeologists have dug up an ancient tomb at the Torontoy Archaeological Complex in the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu in Peru.
The tomb, which belongs to a person of unidentified gender and age, was found accompanied by funerary trappings, pots, plates, an aryballos, a pitcher and a pair of garment pins or tupus.
A report by Andina news agency said that this discovery occurred in the sector B of Torontoy and corresponds to the archaeological research works of the budget 2008, according to the work's resident archaeologist, Homar Gallegos Gutierrez.
In relation to the discovery of the funerary site are two hypotheses.
The first one relates to the time of Torontoy foundation, which would correspond to the construction of the Inca urban plan, characterized by the Kanchas (rectangular spaces surrounded by walls enclosing several structures).
The second one would correspond to the cultural event of site desertion identified by bricked-up doors.Both hypotheses will be contrasted when the multidisciplinary researches deepen. (ANI)
