Various research projects will be completed in Lambayeque, northern Peru with the aim of documenting and recovering possible funerary contexts of the Mochicas settled on Mata Indio, El Triunfo, and La Inmaculada.

The works will get started next month and will be carried out by the archaeologist Walter Alva and the research team of the Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum.

Announcement was made by Walter Alva, the museum’s director, after identifying the said sites along with a technical team of the Executive Unit 005 Naylamp-Lambayeque.

The georeferencing procedure has already begun to guide excavation units and establish the polygons of the archeological sites.

Alva explained these new works will help draw spatial similarities between Mata Indio, El Triunfo and La Immaculada.

The Mochica occupation is what these archaeological places have in common and, without a doubt, this is really important to define the relations with Sipan and Pampa Grande.
