Arqueological finds uncovered in illegal digging in Huanchaco, Peru

June 25, 2015 reports that police who were investigating illegal construction found that workers had uncovered archaeological finds including human and animal bones near here.

A few blocks from where we live in Huanchaco, Peru is a neighborhood called Las Lomas (The Hills).

Part of Las Lomas is designated an Intangible Cultural Heritage site.

Some of the remains were wrapped in cloth.

The Ministry of Culture was notified and representatives of the nearby museum of Chan Chan as well as archeologists from the Ministry Culture arrived to examine the finds.
