Archaeologists discover 1,500-year-old 'battle claws' in ancient Peruvian tomb


Archaeologists in Peru are excited after unearthing a pair of ancient metal cat’s claws from the tomb of dead nobleman.

The paws were found at the archaeological site of Huaca de la Luna or Temple of the Moon -  a shrine located in the capital city of the Moche civilization, a Peruvian culture that flourished in South America between 100 and 800 AD.

The scientists who discovered the grave suggest that the claws might have been part of a ritual costume used in ceremonial combat, according to a report from El Comercia.

There is an existing thread on this in the Palaeontology, Archaeology & History forum.

The topic can be found here: Sharpened metal claws unearthed in Peru.

I'm closing this topic to avoid duplication.
