“The discovery was made on the Mata Indio dig site in the northern Lambayeque region, archaeologist Luis Chero told state news agency Andina”, you can read in News Channel Asia.
The hints that lead the archaeologists to believe the tomb belonged to a noble Inca are the presence of “spondylus,” a type of seashell always present in the graves of important figures of the period the empire existed.
It was also known that this tomb had been broken into multiple times, but there were still several items, such as vases, able to be recovered.
