Archaeology Discovery: 1100 Year Old Friezes Found In Peru

The 1100 year old temple dates from the ancient Lambayeque culture and was home to hundreds of human sacrifices. Today, archaeologists discovered several spectacular polychrome friezes in the temple that are beautifully preserved.In two weeks, the temple located in the Chotuna archaeological complex, will be open for public viewing.

"Now that the friezes have been uncovered, the archaeologists are fighting to preserve them and directed the construction of a roof to protect the works from the sun and rain. The Lambayeque, or Sican, culture flourished on Peru's northern coast 1,200 years ago. Countless archaeological finds made the area a magnet for looters for many years".
