New pyramid discovered in Peru linked to ancient copper industry


A team of archaeologists who uncovered a 1,400 year old pyramid in Peru say that the finding is particularly unusual. The flat-topped pyramid, which was built by the Moche culture, was used for the living rather than just for the dead, and contains a wealth of artefacts, murals and human remains.

Thanks for posting this, interesting reading. The points about ritual sacrifice and burning caught my attention. It seems to be a period many cultures pass through. It's tempting to look back to the past as a refuge from modern stresses. In reality, the past was as stressful as modern times and, dependent on birth and fortune, there was a risk of being eviscerated as an offering!
