Washington Post reports:

It’s not quite as exciting as North Korea’s “unicorn lair,” perhaps, but archaeologists in Peru have just unearthed the previously undisturbed royal tomb of a sophisticated, little-known Andean civilization that predated the Inca.

The tomb contains 63 bodies, including three queens, National Geographic reports. A number of the bodies appear to have been human sacrifices. The tomb also held more than a thousand artifacts, including jewelry, knives, axes and painted ceramics from across the region. The Peruvian news site Peru21 called the site “one of the most important archaeological remains of the last century.” Facebook Fark Furl
