Untouched royal tomb found in Peru

The graves of three ancient Wari queens have been unearthed in a rare undisturbed Peruvian tomb.

The remains were found alongside a treasure trove of gold and silver that has remarkably remained untouched over the centuries despite the area surrounding the tomb being looted numerous times by grave robbers. The discovery dates back to the Wari empire between A.D. 700 and 1000 at a time long before the construction of Machu Picchu by the Incas.

The Wari have remained something of a mystery over the years making the discovery of this intact tomb all the more valuable to archaeologists. Traces of insect pupae on the bodies suggest that the queens may have been taken out of the tomb and put on display at various times before being finally laid to rest.

"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."

how old do you figure they are than? and a little question who would you buy a burger from chef ramsey? or a bum that used to flip burgers in mc d's back in the 60's? same type one just has the more accurate quality My challenge to you will be simple. If you are convinced that the Aymara Indians (that's what they were; indians) performed highly accurate modular stonework in andesite then please provide the evidence. It must be available yes? Some convincing evidence of tools used would be nice. I'll wait.

This thread is about a tomb zoser, its not a sly chance for you to begin talking about stuff that you had threads closed down for, now is it? Maybe you should start your own thread?

lol just using an example heres a better one having a certified company install a play gym in your backyard, or the drunk guy that says he can make a play gym out of used gum and spruce twigs, see the diff in quality? SHIZZAH! No evidence there. Just a claim; nothing more. Evidence needed would be folklore testimony for example. Do the Aymara actually claim to have created the PP site? Evidence suggests not. Where are the tools? What do the Aymara say that PP actually was? They should know. The folkore should have survived the relatively short time frame. Good luck with that.

This thread is about a tomb zoser, its not a sly chance for you to begin talking about stuff that you had threads closed down for, now is it? Maybe you should start your own thread? Oh wait, no I know, they get closed down almost immediately dont they? The OP started off with a premise regarding a comparison of time frames. That premise is faulty. You alerted me to the thread seeder. BTW Plenty of opportunities to expose the mainstream on this forum. No sly opportunities needed. For anyone with an ounce of perception it's a turkey shoot.

man, zoser, what does them being "indians" have to do with their ability to work stone? whatever, the actual article is quite remarkable. i'm very curious to see more of what comes out of it.
