A rare, undisturbed royal tomb has been unearthed in Peru, revealing the graves of three Wari queens buried alongside gold and silver riches and possible human sacrifices.

Though the surrounding site has been looted many times, this mausoleum has managed to evade grave robbers for hundreds of years, archaeologists say.

Long before the Inca built Machu Picchu, the Wari empire flourished between A.D. 700 and 1000 throughout much of present-day Peru. At a time when Paris had just 25,000 residents, the Wari capital Huari was home to 40,000 people at its height, according to National Geographic, which reported the find.

The flask and ear ornaments bring a "personality" to the bones. I can't wait to see more artifacts from the site.

Just think of all the sites not yet discovered, the wealth of evidence yet to be unearthed---and how history is still in the making.

I agree my friend, so much knowledge has yet to be discovered

Sigh. Grave robbers. Thankfully this one has remained untouched. It also seemed to avoid being bulldozed and turned into a road.

What a shame it had to be disturbed, but if removing the artifacts will save them from highway construction, I guess it would be better to lie in a museum somewhere than to be bulldozed, and better than being "looted," though archaeology is looting in a more formal way, come to think of it.

well I couldn't find a good pic of 3 queens with lots of bling, but I did find one pic

Great find tho, seriously. Might have been a bit difficult tho having 3 queens ruling or just being wives to 3 kings that is .. unless they were buried at differing times I guess

I agree that this is an important discovery, on many levels.

Perhaps the most important, as pointed-out, was that this was previously untouched by "grave robbers" or such.

Given that, this is like a time capsule, allowing the experts to further refine the description of the historical events/practices of that era and of that community.

Great find.

Slight problem.

The dating of PP, Machu Pichu and most of the ancient South American sites are all heavily disputed.

It's a mistake to assume that the text books dates are correct.

Something happened at PP way into the distant past as evidenced by the cataclysmic destruction there.  I made the poiint several months ago that if the cataclysm had occurred in more recent times people would have had recollection of it.

We find no such thing among the indigenous people of the areas.

Be careful and don't assume would be my advice.
