This is I think the 4rth discovery of Peruvian tomb in last 6 months! One was in July I made a thread then.


November 28, 2008. Southern Peru.

A team from Peru’s National Institute of Culture (INC) working on the ruins of Torontoy in the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, have discovered the tomb of an Inca with full funerary regalia. The gender and age of the tomb’s owner has not yet been determined, but found with the body were a number of decorated ceramics and two pins.

I always enjoy listening about discoveries like this, it makes you wonder how many more ancient sites are undiscovered.

yup I agree with you folks, so many ancient sites are undiscovered yet :)

It's interesting and funny at the same time that maybe oneday all our stuff will be a mystery for future people
