The petroglyphs were just discovered and there is not too much information about them for now. Fresh news my friends. Not even a youtube video, but there is one inside the link.

Google translation :

They were found in the ecological reserve Huacrupe-Caledon, north of Olmos, Lambayeque. Government is expected to declare the area as a National Cultural Heritage.

The rock engravings symbolic designs representing animals, plants and men, and are intended to worship the water. In addition, they would have over a thousand years old and is presumed to belong to the Chimu culture.

This area has great potential conservation of wildlife species live as bales, foxes, güerequeques, owls and the "macanche" (boa of the coast), which are housed in a farm close to the area to preserve species in danger of extinction.

"Here is preserved equatorial dry forests, is a unique ecosystem in the world. We have (vegetal species) sapote, carob, palo santo, which are endangered species, "said Anibal Calderon, coordinator of Dry Forests to channel N.

The regional conservation area Huacrupe-La Calera is owned by the farming community of Santo Domingo de Olmos. Government is expected to declare the area as a National Cultural Heritage to initiate investigations of the petroglyphs.

Just about a month ago, another discovery was anounced in the same area :

Discovery was made in the Huaca Chotuna-Chornancap. This would be a body of about 700 years linked to human sacrifice.

The remains of a pre-Inca figure of about 700 years old, which is related to the ancient ceremonies of human sacrifice, were found in the archaeological complex Chotuna-Chornancap, 25 miles west of Chicago.

Archaeologists and Yolanda Saldaña Bullón Fausto found the tomb located in the south of the huaca platform, where they also discovered ceremonial knives, a tumi copper over 20 feet, pottery, native cotton suit, among various objects related to Lambayeque culture.

Furthermore, they found several pots, a feather headdress shaped metal shell and even spondylus skulls had been placed into six groups of offerings.

The director of the Bruning Museum in Lambayeque, Carlos Wester La Torre, felt that the character he called "sacrifices" were between 20 and 30 when he was buried in the middle of a ceremonial rite, accompanied by an adult who would also have been sacrificed, reported.
