 Sican priestess tomb found in Peru
Listeros,

The remains of a priestess at the Chotuna-Chornancap sites have been
found. She died at age 25-30 and lived in the 13th century. She was
from the Sican culture. Seven other individuals were buried with her,
a llama and rich funerary offerings. The remains show her contact with
other cultures, including cultures from Ecuador. Shells, gold,
ceramics and a golden scepter with a Sican (Lambayeque) diety on it
were among the offerings.
