The Wari culture tomb was found in Cuzco and may change all we know about Pre-Hispanic Cultures.

Very nice find! That's a lovely breastplate and does show some of the Mayan elements. The face mask is particularly interesting... wish I could get a nice long look at it!

Thanks. I read another article about it, saying there are a total of nine tombs together. Amazing.

They started to call it " The Lord of Wari" (remember Lord of Sipan?). The Wari culture was before the incas, they conquered almost all the peruvian territory and they had contact with the Nazca culture. They also reached the amazon jungle, probably that's why the incas knew where to built the Paititi.


Also, it's already in youtube, here :
