The Archaeology of Child and Camelid Sacrificial Practices in the North Coast of Peru

Referent: Prof. Dr. Gabriel Prieto, Universidad Nacional de Trujillo

During the 13th to the 15th Centuries AD, the Chimu civilization of the present day Peruvian North Coast sacrificed hundreds of children and young camelids. The most compelling evidence is coming from the Huanchaco coastline, located a few miles from Chan Chan, the capital city of the Chimu. This presentation is focused in describing sacrificial contexts at three archaeological sites where hundreds of children were killed to appease the Chimu gods and goddesses.
