Lima Gas Company Unearths Ancient Peruvian Cemetery #shorts.

An ancient cemetery dating back to the Chancay and Huaura Indigenous cultures, some 600 to 800 years old, respectively, has been discovered in Lima, Peru.

MORE: Workers with the local natural gas distribution company Calidda were digging up the streets in the neighborhood to lay down gas distribution pipelines when they came across the archaeological find on September 20.

"As of the first find of archaeological evidence, our protocol was activated and this entire work zone which was a civic project for gas distribution was turned into an archaeological area," according to Cecilia Camargo, an archaeologist and coordinator for the Calidda Gas company at the site.

Camargo stated that archaeologists have thus far uncovered 11 bodies, among them children and adults, and she noted that many of the burial sites include artifacts buried alongside the human remains, including ceramics, textiles and local plants.
