DISCOVERY IN CASTLE DE HUARMEY: DOS TOMBS OF ELITE WARI

Did the arms arrive from imposing Wari to the north coast of Peru? Was that part of the country influenced by the power of a civilization that had as bastion Andean Ayacucho? The specialists debate the topic for decades. Archaeologists like Santiago Uceda or Luis Jaime Castle thinks that the north coast was never invaded by the waris. Other, as Luis Guillermo Lights, they say that yes and that everywhere.

A new hypothesis, let us say intermediate, sink to the polemic and it is outlined by a group of Peruvian archaeologists and Poles of the Catholic Papal University of Peru and of the Center of Before Columbus Studies of the University of Warsaw (Poland). They work from January of the 2011 in the first investigation carried out to depth in the Castle of Huarmey, the most important building in the prehispanic most outstanding monumental complex that there is in that coastal area, specifically between Casma and Paramonga.

Next to their team, the director of the project, Milosz Giersz, sustains that the waris yes they tried to conquer the coast and in fact they got it for a while brief .entre the 700 and 1.000 d.C. in the Castle of Huarmey, where, they estimate, he/she ended up settling an intermediate type elite. They made it exactly in the same frontier up to where the Kingdom arrived Moche.

"The main evidences of the presence of an elite wari in that part of the north coast are some construction techniques in the castle, as well as the funerals that have been, the textile ones and the ceramios. There are other things very typical wari like the discovery of tips of obsidian of Huancavelica, elements that were used as offerings in characters' of elite of that Andean" culture funeral contexts, the expert explains.

Krzysztof Makowski, advisory archaeologist of the project, explains that the castle was a multi-functional building of character courtier in which people used to make meetings, and in the one that, also, a great number of funeral (some profaned by sackers) cameras was built. In these few days they have been two intact.

In one of them is a couple that one shows off it belonged to the elite wari for the form in that you/they have been buried. The bony remains of a man and a woman are seated, to the usage of the mountain. He has wooden soaked earmuffs. Not there were many objects in the place, but yes textile.

The other camera houses a robust youth. Next to him he/she was a bowl of solid (a luck of deep plate) silver, which could be one of the objects of that metal and of that older size found in the country. Also textile of great quality, the specialist says, typical of the culture Wari.
