 Tomb of elite female found in Peru

Listeros,

A tomb of an elite woman has been found in the archaeological complex
of Pacopampa in Peru. She was buried in the main platform of a
ceremonial center. She died in 900 BCE, was between 30-40 years old,
and was buried with gold jewelry, shells and ceramics. The shell
objects show that this mountainous area was in communication with the
coast. Cinnabar was spread on her skull and body and some blue
material which will be analyzed. She was buried in a fetal position
and the legs tied in a mortuary rite
