Breaking News

Archaeologists have unearthed a well-preserved 1,300-year-old female mummy in a residential area of the Peruvian capital.

The woman was from the Wari culture, said archaeologist Isabel Flores, who heads work at the Huaca Pucllana, a mud-brick complex several blocks large located in the Miraflores district of Lima.

"It is an important find, because we have found over the years several tombs that have been looted, but never one that was intact," Flores told AFP on Tuesday.
