Pre-Inca cemetery and citadel discovered in Peru’s Amazon jungle

Local authorities accompanied by a tourist guide discovered a Pre-Incan cemetery and citadel as well as many well-preserved ceramics amidst the lush vegetation of the Bagua Grande region, located in Peru’s Amazon region, daily Peru21 reported Monday.

The archaeological site includes circular stone homes located atop a high mountain, an extensive viewpoint possibly used for military purposes, and a Pre-Inca cemetery where ceramics, skulls and stone-carved axes and other tools were found.

Last December, also in the Utcubamba province of Peru’s Amazonian region, petroglyphs, ceramics and cave paintings were discovered in the Pachallama Mountain.

Petroglyphs are images created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, pecking, carving, or abrading.
