(Luis Takuda, Archeologist)
"We are now in a 3,500-year-old pre-Inca temple. We have found five mummies. Four are apparently children, of whom three are covered with textiles and the other two are skeletons. These are 1,000 years old and belong to the Ychsma culture.''
The pre-Inca Ychsma culture inhabited the
central coast of Peru from around 900 to 1450 AD
