Child and Llama Sacrifice Uncovered at a Chimu Site in Peru
42 children and 76 llamas sacrificed by the Chimu Culture in Peru at 1400 CE have been uncovered by archeologist John Verano. The Chimu site is near the sea, so the children may have been sacrificed as a gift to the sea. The llamas may have been seen as guardians in the underworld.
