Ancient tomb found in Machu Picchu archaeological park





Archaeologists at the National Institute of Culture (INC) have found a pre-Inca tomb in the Salapunku archaeological site, located inside the Machu Picchu Archaeological Park in Cusco, southeastern Peru.

Resident archaeologist Francisco Huaycaya Quispe said that these remains would belong to a woman from the Quillke culture, an indigenous which flourished before the Inca Empire.

According to the archaeologist, this hypothesis is based on the pottery and ruminant and poultry bones found at the site.
